In the beginning
The Hunger-Free Minnesota Campaign
Hunger Impact Partners is the legacy organization of the Hunger-Free Minnesota Campaign.
Between 2011 and 2014 Hunger-Free Minnesota set out to bridge the meal gap through improved food sourcing from farm to table and in-between, building service capacity, as well as heightened government nutrition program awareness and participation.
The model of collective impact ultimately targeted adding 60 million meals. Tangible goals were set and met, thanks to a cumulative investment of more than $9.7 million in communities spanning Minnesota, and the impact of 431 creative projects conceived of and implemented by hundreds of individuals through eight key initiatives that evolved over time.
Following are examples of strategic partnerships we have supported.
