Project Description

An increasing number of Minneapolis residents are relying on food shelves across the city to meet their basic grocery needs. If food shelves aren’t providing healthy food options, it may be difficult or impossible for clients to purchase or find nutritious foods on their own due to cost and limited availability. Food shelves that offer a wide variety of healthy food options, like fresh produce, whole grains, and low-fat, low-sodium, and low-sugar items, can help meet clients’ nutritional needs and contribute to better individual and community health.

In 2012, the Minneapolis Health Department formed the Minneapolis Healthy Food Shelf Network, a collective of more than a dozen food shelves, food banks, and other hunger relief organizations committed to increasing the amount of healthy food options available for individuals and families in need. Specifically, Network partners are working together on the following key issues:
