Mississippi Market’s April EcoStamp recipient is Right to Know Minnesota (RTKM). RTKM is a 501(c)4 organization established to support mandatory labeling in Minnesota of foods that contain genetically-modified organisms. We are a volunteer-run organization.
Right To Know MN is a campaign started by concerned citizens to make the labeling of GMOs the law in Minnesota. They are made up of a coalition of farmers, health advocates, families, and others who support healthy foods.
Our EcoStamp recipient for March was the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. Those who rounded up and/or donated at the registers helped us raise $21,273.88 for these St. Paul food shelves – Keystone Community Services, SPACC – Dept of Indian Work, Neighborhood House & Hallie Q. Brown food shelf. We are still waiting for final numbers to come back about how many pounds of food was donated. Check back later to see if it was enough for us to reach our goal of 24,000 $/lb of food.
