Summer Harvest for Kids: Shining a light on a program that helps year-round

May 16, 2019 11:02 PM

The 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Summer Harvest for Kids campaign is underway.

Part of that effort is shining a light on those who help year-round.

Jay Knaeble volunteers with The Food Group's Fare for All program. Fare for All buys food in bulk and passes the savings on to customers, who save up to 40% off grocery store prices.

The program is volunteer-led. 

"It's such a rewarding thing to be able to provide to your community," Knaeble said. "Maybe you don't have the financial means to give monetary donations. We all can probably find a few hours in our schedules on a monthly basis to provide back in a capacity like this where we're donating our time. We're helping our fellow community members." 

There are 38 Fare for All locations throughout Minnesota. The program is open to all.
