Harmony’s “Buy Local, Give Local” campaign raises $1,500

Harmony Food Co-Op in Bemidji recently partnered with two community organizations, the White Earth Land Recovery Project and Gitigaanike Foods Initiative, in their annual Buy Local-Give Local shopping campaign held on Black Friday.

According to a release, the event this year raised $775 for each partner.

Harmony donated 10 percent of the daily sales to the initiatives.

The mission of the White Earth Land Recovery Project is to facilitate the recovery of the original land base of the White Earth Reservation while preserving and restoring traditional practices of stewardship and language fluency.

The Gitigaanike Initiative was created to decrease diet-related health issues, increase access to local healthy foods and develop a local foods economy.
