- March Campaign
- March 1st, 2016
The St. Peter Food Co-op is aiming to raise 12,000 dollars and pounds of groceries for the St. Peter Area Food Shelf during the annual Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. With 23 partnering businesses and organizations collecting donations, the Co-op is harvesting the power of our community to achieve this donation goal.
March is an especially important time to donate because all food and money given earn the St. Peter Area Food Shelf credits that can be used for purchasing food from Second Harvest throughout the entire year – the more we donate now, the more credits the Food Shelf receives to meet demand year round.For more than 30 years, Minnesota FoodShare has coordinated the March Campaign, the annual grassroots food and fund drive that provides more than half the food distributed by 300 food shelves throughout the state. The March Campaign is the only statewide effort where every dollar donated goes directly to food shelves to purchase food for the hungry. This will be the Co-op’s 6th year collecting donations for the St. Peter Area Food Shelf.

St. Peter Food Co-op Product Recall
Garden of Life RAW Meal Organic Shake and Meal Replacement
RAW Meal Voluntary Recall Expanded to Include Additional Lots Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination
“We are now able to share with you that we’ve identified the likely source of Salmonella contamination to be Organic Moringa Leaf powder from a supplier used only in RAW Meal. This source only supplies Moringa to the manufacturer of RAW Meal and we started using this material in September. This Moringa is not used in any other Garden of Life product or by any other manufacturer. This means there is no risk to any other Garden of Life product and no other Garden of Life products are affected. Only RAW Meal was exposed.
With the information we have now, it is clear to us that this is the right thing to do. Just like the original recall –which we did without waiting for direction from the FDA – we are putting our consumers’ health first and acting out of an abundance of caution. We will always act in our consumers’ best interests regardless of what it means for us. That means that if we aren’t absolutely sure of a product, we won’t sell it. Period.
In order to prevent a recurrence of this issue, we removed Organic Moringa powder entirely from RAW Meal and have required our manufacturer to remove it from its facility. You will not notice a change to your favorite RAW Meal flavor.
