Our Change Matters program provides shoppers an opportunity to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small-change donations, which accumulate into a meaningful contribution for the recipient. The recipient changes monthly, with organizations chosen by a committee of Wedge staff.
Rounding up at the register is an easy way to make donations. During the month of September all register donations will go to support North Country Food Alliance.
North Country Food Alliance is a non-profit organization based in the Twin Cities. They increase access to food and share food with people in need. They accomplish this through weekly food-shares, community gardening, and community meals. As part of their programming, North Country Food Alliance shares fresh produce and baked goods several times a week in low-income and working class neighborhoods across the Twin Cities metro. North Country Food Alliance builds new community gardens each season in the Twin Cities, teaching people to grow healthy food and creating more access. Learn more at northcountryfoodalliance.org
Change Matters! Next time you’re at the checkout we hope you’ll consider “rounding-up”. If you prefer, you may donate a larger dollar amount at once by asking the cashier to add it to your total. All donations will appear on your itemized receipt and are tax-deductible. With your generous support, we can ensure that valuable organizations like these continue to work and grow in our community.
