Farmington volunteers come together to feed the community


[Farmington Independent, June 09, 2013] Farmington’s Allina Medical Clinic hopes a little community service will help build connections in the city.

On Saturday the clinic joined Allina locations across the area to pack tens of thousands of meals for local food shelves. According to company estimates, more than 1,800 volunteers at 40 sites assembled more than 50,000 meal packs. Each pack is designed to feed four people with cans of corn and black beans, tomatoes, chicken, brown rice and recipes on healthy living. The efforts were run by clinic staff as well as volunteers from the community.
