In honor of National Pollinators Week, the City of Minneapolis is offering free “seedles” to the city’s residents, available at farmers markets this week. Seedles are wildflower seed balls that help provide healthy plants – food and shelter for pollinators – in your yard and boulevard.

Last week, the state budget bill containing funding for the Market Bucks program was signed by the governor, and the program was fired up again for the 2017 season. The Market Bucks were printed and distributed this week, and will be available beginning Saturday at the market info booth. The Market Bucks program improves access to fresh local food for SNAP/EBT (sometimes referred to as food stamps) recipients, by matching up to $10 per day spent in SNAP/EBT at the market dollar for dollar with Market Bucks. Check out the infographic below or visit the Hunger Solutions website for more details on how the Market Bucks program works.
