Area food shelves stocked with energy efficient light bulbs


Tue, Mar 23rd, 2010
Posted in Business Announcements

The annual Minnesota FoodShare Campaign is in full swing and local participating food shelves are stocked with energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).

The CFLs are part of a promotion by Tri-County Electric Cooperative to encourage their members to make a donation to their local food shelf.

Earlier this month TEC members received a coupon with their electric bill instructing them to bring the coupon with a donation to a participating food shelf to redeem it for a free CFL.

Each March, FoodShare directs the largest food drive in the state and restocks more than 260 food shelves across Minnesota. FoodShare has an incentive food fund that is paid for by corporate and individual donors. This means the more a food shelf raises, the more money they receive from the fund.

CFLs will be available while supplies last or March 31. The list of participating food shelves by city include:

Caledonia, 507-725-3677

Preston, 507-765-2761

Rushford, 507-864-7741

Saint Charles, 507-932-5203

Spring Valley, 507-346-7367 ext. 3

Winona, 507-452-5591

Wykoff, 507-352-4282

Those wishing to make a donation are encouraged to call their local food shelf for drop-off locations and times.

TEC is a member-owned electric distribution cooperative serving three counties in Minnesota including Winona, Houston and Fillmore and parts of Olmsted and Mower counties in Minnesota and Howard, Winneshiek and Allamakee counties in Iowa. It provides electricity to more than 12,800 services in the area.
