With all the cold and snowy weather this winter, it’s exciting to think the Excelsior Farmers Market will return Tuesday, May 22, and will run through Tuesday, Sept. 25.
One change that customers will notice this year is the Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the farmers’ market, has partnered with the ICA Food Shelf to add access for Electronic Benefits Transfer cards for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program users.
The idea to add EBT card access to the farmers market was put forward by Laura Hotvet, executive director of the chamber.
When the doors of the ICA Food Shelf in Minnetonka opened at 11:30 a.m. last Monday, 20 people were standing in line or waiting in cars.
Some headed for racks at the front of the store where there were shelves of bread and bananas, while others signed in, having already scheduled appointments.
Economic distress is nothing new for some people in the Twin Cities suburbs, but the growth in clientele at the ICA, located in a small industrial strip mall, reflects the financial difficulties many people now experience despite state statistics showing lower unemployment rates.
As May comes to an end, so does the 68th annual Mental Health Month. Mental Health America initiated the first observance of May as Mental Health Month in 1949. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 20 percent of adults in the U.S. will experience a mental health issue, like depression or anxiety, during their lifetime.
When dreaming of retirement, many people look forward to relaxing and retreating to a warmer climate during cold Minnesota winters. However, Minnetonka resident Ron Kamps had a different dream when he retired 12 years ago: he wanted to give back to the community he has called home for 44 years.
EDCO Products, Inc., a Minnesota based manufacturer of residential and commercial exterior building products, in conjunction with their 70th anniversary, today announced a partnership with ICA Food Shelf that will provide significant financial support, as well as additional employee involvement with future ICA initiatives.
