Vision: The Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council envisions a vibrant local food system that enhances the health of all residents, protects the earth, increases economic vitality, expands social connectedness, and improves food security.

  2. convenes and engages diverse stakeholders to identify and propose innovative solutions to improve the local food system;
  3. provides ongoing guidance to the City on local food issues; and
  4. serves as a platform for collaborative, coordinated action.
