Community Involvement

MN Foodshare March Campaign

Every year, People’s Food Co-op—Rochester joins our fellow co-ops throughout the state to collect food and raise funds for MN FoodShare’s March Campaign.

Every year the campaign brings together hundreds of companies, civic groups, schools, and congregations to help keep 300 food shelves statewide stocked throughout the year.

Our efforts will go to supporting Channel One and Southeast MN food shelves. In addition to wooden nickels, we will be collecting cash and food and selling prebagged groceries for FoodShare. Please help co-ops be the biggest contributor in the state by supporting the drive. Be on the lookout in March for ways to support our community building mission.
