We hear from our members that rounding up at the register is an easy way to make donations. It works well for the Minnesota FoodShare drive every March, so we've decided to do it year-round.
Each month we'll let you know who will be getting the money collected from your "round up" donations. (Cash donations placed in the plastic tubs at the registers will continue to go to local food shelves unless otherwise indicated.)
The Change Matters recipient for the month of April is the Groveland Food Shelf, a non-profit providing emergency groceries for those in need. They operate two programs from the basement of Plymouth Congregational Church: Groveland Emergency Food Shelf and Groveland Food for Youth. The Food for Youth program helps youth who are homeless or in transition and all youth who need food, get it.
The food shelf distributes over 40,000 pounds of food per month to approximately 2,000 households in the neighborhoods surrounding Franklin and Nicollet Avenues, south of downtown.
Make change easy. Help us raise money for our neighborhood food shelf by asking your cashier to round up your total.
