Summary of Services Provided

The Food Group sells high quality, low-cost groceries in urban neighborhoods and rural communities. All sales are open to anyone who wants convenient access to healthy food at reasonable prices:

Fare For All is a traveling grocery store that stops monthly at almost 40 distribution sites across the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota. Families can stretch their food dollar by buying quality produce and meats at up to 40 percent off retail prices.

Twin Cities Mobile Market sells healthy foods from a bus that travels across St. Paul and Minneapolis. It stops in neighborhoods that don’t have easy access to full-service grocery stores or food shelves. It’s stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products, staples and more — all at affordable prices. Schedule here.

Big River Farms is an incubator farm near Marine on St. Croix, MN. Farmers have access to land, farm resources, and education to build their businesses, learn, and grow sustainable, organic foods. Vegetables grown by emerging farmers at Big River Farms are sold through multiple channels based on their independent business plans and needs.
