Creating Healthy Communities In The Twin Cities

The two main reactions we get from people when we show up on the street to give away free food are surprise and gratitude", says Clay Hansen, Foodshare Coordinator for Sisters' Camelot, a collective working to generate sustainability in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Each week, the colourful "Free Food" bus rides through low-income neighborhoods in the twin cities to gift organic food to all. Giving 6,000 to 8,000 pounds of produce to people each week -- with no strings attached -- has helped to meet everyone's basic needs and created a healthy, glowing community. Watch as children, families, and volunteers come together in this vibrant circle of giving and receiving.
