Minnesota Kids Sell Rhubarb for Disaster Relief

1 Jun


Clearly it is the season for rhubarb as this is my second post about rhubarb this week. In my defense, my rhubarb frenzy is for a great cause.

@kharner's sons harvest rhubarb

My friend @kharner’s two adorable boys are selling their rhubarb crop as a fundraiser for families affected in North Minneapolis and Joplin, MO. Deadly tornadoes ripped through the Midwest recently and, like me, her heart went out to everyone struggling with the aftermath of the storms. I am impressed by the way her family is giving back and the incredible life lesson it teaches her young sons.

Kids' rhubarb fundraiser for disaster relief

So, local Minnesota folks, contact Kristin ASAP to get your bunch of rhubarb and support disaster relief.

You can make my rhubarb crisp muffins, or try this recipe I just discovered: rhubarb krack!

Thank you, readers, and many thanks to Kristin’s family for their generosity!

Also, thanks for the posts on rhubarb, what a great thing you are doing and a great way to teach your kids about helping and giving back. I just found some rhubarb on our place leftover from my grandmother’s garden and I am looking for some recipes…think I found some here! Thanks!
