The Food Group: Produce Rescue Program Kicks Off This Weekend!

The Food Group, formerly Emergency Foodshelf Network, is partnering with Hunger Solutions Minnesota to collect surplus produce from farmers, vendors and customers at the Minneapolis Farmers Market to distribute to food shelves and meal programs in the Twin Cities metro area.

Produce Rescue will take place on Sundays beginning July 12 and will continue throughout the Minneapolis Farmers Market season. If you would like to donate excess produce, please visit the Produce Rescue tent or find one of our volunteers. Look for the bright orange “The Food Group” vests!
