In honor of March being National Nutrition Month, Winona Hy-Vee is partnering with Winona Volunteer Services to introduce a program called Hy-Vee Fresh Funds. Fresh Funds increases access to fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables for local food shelf clients.
When shopping at the Winona Hy-Vee, 1475 West Service Drive, during the month of March, ask your cashier at the checkout to add $1, $5, $10 or more to your grocery bill. The amount donated is then deposited directly into a separate account for Winona Volunteer Services to purchase fresh food for food shelf clients. There is no limit to how much you can donate. All donations are tax deductible — just save your receipt for tax purposes.
The Hy-Vee Fresh Funds program is supported by the Minnesota Department of Health and Winona County PartnerSHIP (Statewide Health Improvement Partnership).
“We’re proud to serve the Winona community and support an incredible program like Fresh Funds,” said Winona County PartnerSHIP Coordinator Janneke Sobeck. “The Fresh Funds program is another great initiative toward building a healthier community for all.”
Winona County PartnerSHIP works to create healthier communities across Winona County by expanding opportunities for active living, healthy eating, and tobacco-free living.
