C.H. Robinson Supports Food Deserts

Recently, North Market, a grocery store that unites three elements of community health: nutritious food, health care services, and wellness events and education, opened its doors. It’s located in North Minneapolis, site of one of the country’s largest food deserts.  

The C.H. Robinson Foundation is a founding partner of the market, and will hold a seat on its advisory board.

 “Myself and the grants committee felt strongly about supporting this new kind of grocery store,” Noah Hoffman, general manager at Robinson Fresh said. “North Market provides access to healthy food and food assistance to its community, something we’re very passionate about supporting.”  

North Market will have plenty of fresh produce including Robinson Fresh’s Glory Foods® brand.
