October 8 at the Mill City Farmers Market - Please Participate in the Greens for Good Program

While you're shopping for veggies at the Mill City Farmers Market this Saturday, please consider buying some fresh food to donate to their Greens for Good program. Produce donations can be brought to the Delta Dental and Campus Kitchen booth at the market.

Mill City Farmers Market has been working with Campus Kitchen since 2013, collecting excess produce from farmers at the end of the market. Farmers give fruits and vegetables that didn’t sell, seconds, CSA boxes that didn’t get picked up, produce that won’t survive the drive home, etc.

In 2015, Campus Kitchen donated over 5,000 pounds of Mill City Farmers Market produce to the Cedar Riverside Neighborhood. They distributed it primarily to seniors in low-income housing, and any leftover produce was used in Campus Kitchen’s Sunday night cooking class where they teach TRIO students (low income/first generation college students) how to prepare healthy and delicious dishes using the fresh veggies. What they prepared was then served at the Brian Coyle Center in their free lunch program to seniors or to a youth shelter.
