We’re Mississippi Market’s Positive Change June Recipient!

IMG_7898

Throughout the month of June, shoppers at all three Mississippi Market locations in St. Paul will have the chance to donate to Cycles for Change through the Positive Change program.

The Positive Change program is designed for non-profit organizations with missions dedicated to the environment, sustainable agriculture, and food access. This program enables shoppers to round up their purchases or donate 10¢ credits when they bring their own reusable bags to shop. The Positive Change recipients collect donations from a one month time period from all three Mississippi Market store locations. It may just be a few cents or spare change, but the impact on our community is astounding.

Mississippi Market locations:

622 Selby Ave.
1500 7th St. W.
740 E. 7th St.
