    KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

    The Food Group (formerly Emergency Foodshelf Network) is a local nonprofit that provides healthy food to the community. For more than 40 years The Food Group has worked to make sure our hungry neighbors have the food they need. They provide nutritious food to a network of more than 240 food shelves, meal programs, and Fare For All food distribution sites in 21 coun- ties throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. Their newest program area, Big River Farms, focuses on providing sustainable agriculture training for immigrant and minority farmers. This addition broadens their focus on the local food system as a whole and allows them to work more deeply on equity, access, and nutrition issues related to food and hunger.
