Social Inequities

We work to ensure that children have access to food. The truth is, communities of color experience food insecurity more than others and that’s just the beginning of disparities. It’s incomprehensible that children have to grow up facing racism every day, at every age. As an organization, we want all citizens to commit to ending this injustice. We stand with those facing prejudice. We hold out hope that our communities will come together to heal, grow stronger, become more aware of social inequities, and be willing to do what is needed to eradicate racism.

We increase access to nutritious food for Minnesota Infants and children by leveraging under-utilized federal meals programs in childcare, school and community settings. Children should only be hungry to learn.
