A surprising number of families in our communities are going hungry. In 2021, 1 in 8 kiddos in Minnesota did not know where their next meal would come from. Black, Hispanic, and Indigenous households are at least twice as likely to experience food insecurity, and demand for emergency food assistance is up 60% year over year.
