Unrest Response

Response to Communities Affected by the Unrest

As a result of looted, burned and closed grocery stores from the recent unrest, some of our communities in the Twin Cities have become food deserts. Many children and families have been left without access to essential items. We are working hard with our partners to bring food and hope throughout the coming weeks and months as the community heals.

“That is what a community is supposed to be, you rally around each other with your time, food or whatever is needed, and get it to those who need help.”

Rob Williams, Executive Director
