milk and moonshine
Students design contest for a better bag
Maybe one way to get shoppers to bring their own bags to farmers markets is to make those bags really cool. Toward that end, high school students in Hennepin and Anoka counties are invited to show their artistic talents and come up with a design that will be showcased on thousands of reusable canvas bags given to shoppers at the Minneapolis Farmers Market. The market, in partnership with Country Financial, launched the “Grow Your Own Way” contest to reduce waste and promote recycling. The winning student will receive a $1,000 scholarship, and two runners up will get $500 scholarships. April 18.

Milk is one of the items most requested by clients at food banks around the country. Yet it’s rarely donated. That’s why Second Harvest Homeland has launched the Great American Milk Drive, a first ever national program to help deliver milk to hungry families that need it most. By entering your ZIP code, you can ensure that the milk is delivered from a farm to a local Feeding America food bank in your community.
