Coronavirus Response

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased child food insecurity in our community considerably.
Since March 2020, our network has responded by providing OVER 4.1 MILLION MEALS. We have adapted our food distribution methods based on the learning models implemented by our school partners and have added new sites, providing over 200,000 meals a month across 33 school districts in Minnesota. Our meal bags are also available at YMCA locations across the Twin Cities, and we continue to work with other partners to make food available at libraries, parks, community buildings, workshop centers, and fire stations.
Child food insecurity is expected to stay at a 50% increased level through the pandemic – one of the highest rates for child hunger in Minnesota in decades. To provide more meals to more children in our community, we need to raise more funds to expand our program to 550 schools, which account for 47% of school-age children in the state.
This is an uncertain time for all of us, but we want to ensure that kids are not uncertain about where their next meal is coming from.
We invite you to join us in this our fight against child hunger during this historic pandemic.

Our community and organization’s strongest asset is our ability to work together to serve the children. We continue to do everything we can to get food to the kids that need it the most. Thank you for your partnership now and always.”

Rob Williams, Founder and President
