Donate fresh produce on Aug. 8 and get a free tote bag

To increase the nutritional options for families that rely on food shelves, the Minneapolis Health Department is asking City employees to donate any extra fruits and vegetables they’ve purchased or grown.

To thank donors, any employee who drops off fresh produce on Thursday, Aug. 8 will receive a free Minneapolis Healthy Food Shelf Network tote bag. Donations of fresh fruits and vegetables will be accepted between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at the City Hall donation site, which is located at the light rail stop. Just look for the produce drop-off banner and the Health Department staff member who will be on hand to accept donations.

The Health Department is collecting donations of fresh fruits and vegetables at this location every Thursday through Oct. 10. After you drop off your donation, the Health Department staff will ensure that donated fruits and vegetables are delivered to local food shelves that participate in the Minneapolis Healthy Food Shelf network

This project is supported by the Minneapolis Health Department’s Statewide Health Improvement Program grant, which is funded by the Minnesota Department of Health. This effort is part of the department’s Healthy Food Shelf project which aims to help food shelves overcome obstacles that make it difficult to offer nutritious foods.
