Working side by side with local partners, we increase access to nutritious food for Minnesota infants and children in childcare, school, and neighborhood settings. Such government food programs are underutilized. Since 2015, we have connected hungry kids to nutritious meals and helped young families access healthy foods.

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