Working side by side with local partners, we increase access to nutritious food for Minnesota infants and children in childcare, school, and neighborhood settings. Because government food programs for children and families are underutilized, we help connect hungry kids with nutritious meals and young families with access to healthy foods.

Children should only be hungry to thrive, learn and reach their full potential.
