Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council

Statement of VisionFood Council page

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.

Statement of Mission

To continue to advance Homegrown Minneapolis, the Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council works to support all Minneapolis residents and increase access to quality food, address hunger and food insecurity, connect sectors of the food system, influence policy and decision making, and ensure an environmentally sustainable and socially just food system. To accomplish this, the food council:

  1. fosters City-community partnerships;
  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.
