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.)
This March, your donations will go to Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches that harnesses the power of individuals and organizations statewide to collect cash and food for their local shelves.
Each March, Minnesota FoodShare raises enough money and food to stock nearly 300 food shelves throughout Minnesota. Last year, their March campaign raised more than $8.3 million and almost 4 million pounds of food.
Every year the Wedge unites with other co-ops to raise money for the March campaign. Co-ops are always near the top of the "most donated" list, so let's do that again this year!
Your Wedge Front End staff set a goal of raising more than $4,500 through rounding up at the register. Help us crush that goal by asking your cashier to round up your total!
Be the hero! Fight hunger!
