The District Edina

We are kicking off the holiday season with a “Relo Friendsgiving” food drive.  It’s an evening of art and wine with a purpose.  Join us on November 15th at The District in Edina, MN for a festive gathering of mobility professionals to celebrate and donate!  Bring non-perishable food donations and make a difference for children and families in need this Thanksgiving.  

Take an art gallery tour, compete in our art sculpture competition, play games, raffles and win prizes!   Enjoy hearty appetizers and wine/beer selections.  All proceeds benefit local food shelves!


Food Drive

We are collecting unexpired, non-perishable food donations to support children, seniors, individuals, and families experiencing hunger.  In partnership with Move for Hunger, all donations will be shared with local food shelves to provide nutritious meals and make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.  Here is a list of suggested donations:

  • Applesauce
  • Canned Beans
  • Canned Chicken
  • Canned Fish (Tuna and Salmon)
  • Canned Meat (SPAM and Ham)
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Cooking Oils (Olive and Canola)
  • Crackers
  • Dried Herbs and Spices
  • Fruit (Canned or Dried)
  • Granola Bars
  • Instant Mashed Potatoes
  • Meals in a Box
  • Nuts
  • Pasta
  • Peanut Butter
  • Rice
  • Shelf-stable and Powdered Milk
  • Soup, Stew and Chili
  • Whole Grain Cereal

Art Sculpture Competition

Put your creativity to good use and compete in an art sculpture competition using donated canned goods, boxed and bagged food items.  Work in teams to design and construct a 3D Thanksgiving turkey.  Guest judges will choose the winners.  Join in on the fun to support a worthwhile cause and a chance to win big prizes.  All food items will be donated to local food shelves.

We truly appreciate your help and support to make the MERC 2023 Relo Friendsgiving a success and we hope to see you there!
