No matter where we live, when we taste the flavors of our community, we are home.

Our Community is Home to Many Cultures

It is crucial that our neighbors facing hunger have access to foods, flavors and spices that are familiar and important to their culture. 

Access to food is an essential ingredient for building inclusion and creating a community where everyone can thrive.

In partnership with nonprofits across the Twin Cities, we’ve developed 11 cultural food packs containing a variety of pantry staples and spices — things like beans, noodles, sauces, and baking supplies — that when supplemented with fresh items, create nutritious and familiar meals.

Help us fill local food shelves with these pantry packs by joining our Flavors of Our Community initiative!
