Hugh J. Andersen Foundation

Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation
Hunger remains an issue in urban, suburban and rural communities throughout the region. Grant funds from the Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation will be utilized to provide food to hungry people throughout St. Croix, Pierce and Polk counties in Wisconsin; and Washington County in Minnesota.
Too often, lower-income people with chronic health conditions suffer from hunger, which only worsens their poor health. With this grant from the Medtronic Foundation, we will implement and evaluate several interventions at area hospitals and clinics that are designed to improve food security and health outcomes among hungry patients.
Did you know 1 of 6 Minnesota children are at risk of hunger? To address this issue, the Cargill Foundation’s grant will be used to improve food security among children through a full range of research-based and experience-tested strategies.
