GROWING

  • The Food Group Farm is located on the front lawn of our property in New Hope, MN. With the help of volunteers, we grow and harvest thousands of pounds of pesticide-free fresh produce each season to be donated to food shelf partners. Contact: Ari Baum-Hommes, 763-450-3870, abaumhommes@thefoodgroupmn.org.

GLEANING

  • Fruits of The City works with backyard fruit tree owners and local orchards to glean excess fruit, such as apples and pears, and share the fresh produce with partner food shelves. Many volunteers are needed each autumn to help with the harvest.  Contact: Ari Baum-Hommes, 763-450-3870, abaumhommes@thefoodgroupmn.org.
  • Minneapolis Farmers Market Produce Rescue gives vendors a chance to donate excess fresh produce at the end of the market. Volunteers collect and package the donations, and we deliver it to partner food shelves. Contact: Eric Wilson, 763-450-3872, ewilson@thefoodgroupmn.org
  • Farm Gleaning helps local farmers find a home for their surplus produce. Teams of volunteers visit the farm to harvest and package fresh vegetables to bring back for distribution to food shelves. Contact: Eric Wilson, 763-450-3872, ewilson@thefoodgroupmn.org
