VIDEO: Bringing Fresh Produce to the Community

September 22, 2014 By Briana Johnson, Video Production Specialist

Fresh fruits and vegetables can be very expensive, especially in many low-income areas. Expense along with access to local grocery stores in North Minneapolis have proven to make it difficult for some families to have fresh, healthy food. NorthPoint along with community partners, Project Sweetie Pie, Gardening Matters and others joined together to provide free produce for community members. Project Sweetie Pie provided free seeds along with demonstrations on how to plant your own crops and ways to take care of plants both indoors and out.

Minnesota 2020 headed over to North Minneapolis to learn more.
