Every weekend, you can find the Feeding Saint Paul team doing good in their community. Each Sunday at noon, they serve hot, fresh food for their Saint Paul community and families in need.
“We are thrilled to have won! Currently we still owe $5,000 on the food trailer that we bought to help us mobilize and feed more people. We plan to take these winnings and pay down what we owe. Thank you for voting for Feeding Saint Paul!”

Fall 2021 Small Business Winner
Swept Away Cleaning is a woman-owned, local business that provides eco-friendly, high quality and reliable cleaning services to residential and commercial spaces throughout the Twin Cities area. Their mission is to “Make Home your Haven” one cleaning at a time.
Swept Away Cleaning plans to use the funds from the contest to implement a “clean it forward” initiative. In addition to their regularly scheduled cleans, they are going to open up nominations for the physically, economically and emotionally vulnerable. They strive to make sure no one is denied a clean home because they lack the resources to provide it for themselves.
“Making the Greater Good Even Greater has given me a boost of confidence in what we do and that our work is needed and appreciated. We do not help others for recognition but it is truly humbling to know that we are making a difference in the lives of others.”
Rebecca Gonzalez Baril, Swept Away Cleaning Owner
