A strong safety net for our community

Job loss. Medical bills. A shrinking pension check. Just not enough money and food to go around.

When families face problems like these, we’re the safety net they can depend on to keep food on the table. We’re also working with other hunger relief partners to find new solutions to keep the safety net strong year after year. Together last year we served 532,000 people and supplied them with 77 million meals.

1 in 6 children in Minnesota lives at risk of hunger.

Stabilizing hungry families

What is the impact of having enough food? Food stability means being able to live fully as a productive parent, employee or student, being able to focus on your quality of life without worrying about how to feed yourself or your family.
