Appetite For Change is a nonprofit organization in North Minneapolis. We are shaping a community-driven organization to create programming, products and services that are wanted, needed and owned by the community.
Our goal is to create a community based and led organization whose mission, vision and projects are shaped by the people we are serving. Appetite For Change works collaboratively with residents and organizations to create food and garden-based programming that builds individual, family and community capacity while working to create social change.
Food is a powerful tool
Bringing people together around food is one way to build capacity for creating social, racial and economic justice while bettering communities and making families more powerful agents of change. Food can be a powerful tool to build health, wealth and promote positive change in the community.
We believe that when families come together around the dinner table to reclaim the kitchen as a place to bond with and educate children, then communities become stronger and more capable to advocate for themselves and against the injustices they experience.
