Prepared MCK meals set on table


There is more than enough food to feed everyone. Through innovation, advocacy and our extensive partner network, we connect our hungry neighbors to the full resources of our community.


The Hunger Relief Network

We provide 76% of the food that our agency partners provide to your neighbors—working families, children, seniors and college students.

Illustration of what we do
  • We operate like a wholesaler and collect donated and rescued foods in large quantities, then pack and distribute orders from our 233,000 square-foot Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, facility.

  • We collaborate with hundreds of hunger relief partners, from neighborhood food shelves and faith-based organizations to schools and community centers. Working together, we deliver requested foods to small towns and big cities across our region.

  • When we see a need, we find effective ways to meet it. Our scale, efficiency and collaborative approach helps us make an impact, while responding with agility and compassion. Through programming and operations, we're leaders where food can be a solution. 

  • At the state and federal levels, we champion the anti-hunger policies that reduce food insecurity and help our hungry neighbors access the healthy food they need to thrive. We work together, mobilize support and use our voices to make change.

Connecting the Community

Our work goes far beyond food rescue, sourcing and distribution. Every day, we collaborate with area food shelves, hunger relief agencies and other partners to meaningfully address and end hunger.

Uniting Our Voices to Foster Progress

Hunger relief requires commitment, resources and action on all fronts. That's why we advocate for effective programs and policies that efficiently get food and nutrition resources to those who need it most.
