Marketplace Foods recently made a donation to the Sanford Health Foundation of Northern Minnesota in support of its Edith Sanford Breast Center in Bemidji. This will help provide mammograms to women in our community who cannot afford them.

Marketplace Foods held the Power of Pink event in its Bemidji store on Oct. 16 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month by making and selling a 50-foot long pink ribbon cake as well as an assortment of pink goodies. A total of 10 percent of all bakery sales on Oct. 16 went to the Edith Sanford Breast Center in Bemidji. Anyone interested in supporting the foundation may do so by contacting the Sanford Health Foundation at (218) 333-5515. Marketplace Foods has supermarkets in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin.
