New Foodshare Sources!
We are excited to announce that we have acquired a new foodshare source from J & J distributing! This is a St. Paul wholesaler that provides fresh fruits and vegetables to grocery stores. Due to their support we are now able to drop off food to an additional site in North Minneapolis. Additionally, North Country Food Alliance has been picking up leftover CSA shares from Oxendale Market in South Minneapolis and from Harmony Valley Farm CSA. CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) are farms from which customers sign up for a seasonal share and pick up boxes of fresh produce at local retailers. However, every week there are several boxes leftover because people can't always pick up their shares. So now those boxes are coming to us and being distributed to soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Deepest gratitude to all our suppliers!
