Community Involvement

MN Foodshare March Campaign


For the seventh consecutive year, People’s Food Co-op—Rochester will join our fellow co-ops throughout the state to collect food and raise funds for MN FoodShare’s March Campaign. Every year, the March Campaign brings together hundreds of Minnesota organizations, businesses, and places of worship to help keep 300 food shelves statewide stocked throughout the year.

Minnesota FoodShare has distributed over $17.8 million to participating food shelves throughout the state. One hundred percent of donations received by Minnesota FoodShare during the March Campaign go into the FoodFund and are distributed to March Campaign participating food shelves.

PFC’s efforts will go to supporting Channel One and Southeast MN food shelves. In addition to Beans for Bags, PFC will be selling premade bags for Channel One and collecting food for Community Food Response. Shoppers will also have the option to round up their bill at checkout. Thanks to all of you for your donations make co-ops the biggest contributor in the state.
