Produce Reclamation

Putting more fresh produce on every table.

With your help, we can reclaim locally grown produce from farms and farmers markets to share with food shelves and other programs that help make nourishing food accessible.

Farmers Market Rescue Reclamation

Sunday mornings July – October, volunteers visit booths at the Minneapolis Farmers Market (312 East Lyndale Ave N) to collect surplus produce.


The Food Group’s produce program staff and volunteers travel to area farms July – November to harvest remaining produce. Join to visit local farms, harvest fresh food, and meet new people!

The Food Group believes in food equity. They believe in culturally specific foods. They believe in meeting people where they are at. And most of all, they believe in dignity.
