The Neighborhood Pods


The Neighborhood Pod program supports the continuation of BrightSide FarmStands in low-income, food insecure neighborhoods in North Minneapolis. The FarmStands bring affordable produce into the community and employ a local youth to co-manage the stand.

The neighborhood pods are an important piece, allowing the FarmStands to remain a financially sustainable operation and paying our youth partners a wage. In return, neighborhood pod members receive a $15 bundle of excess produce each week. These bundles contain a mixture of conventional, and chemical-free locally sourced produce.
This summer we will host 8 farm stands and employ 8 local youth! The FarmStands will run until the first week in September. Pod members may join throughout the summer!
