About The Initiative
A Coalition Focused on Hunger
We know that no one individual or organization can end hunger alone. That’s why our community has assembled a coalition of local organizations, companies, government representatives, volunteers, and hunger-relief partners. Together, we will work to make a difference for the communities of Mower County.
Starting in our Hometown
We believe food security can be achieved, and that we all have a responsibility to help achieve this goal. We also believe that there’s no better place to start than in the hometowns of Mower County, Minnesota.
We’ll share what we learn, so that all hometowns can benefit.
Our goal is that Mower County will be deemed a food secure community when data indicates a 3% food insecurity rate and all individuals have access to sustainable systems meeting nutrition needs to include food preferences, dietary needs, and culturally competent food to promote a lifestyle conducive to a flourishing community. Our goal will be achieved through informed solutions related to partners, programs, policy, and research.
Community Assessment: Food Insecurity in Mower County
Through dozens of stakeholder interviews, surveys, community listening sessions, subject matter expert input, and countless conversations, the Coalition has complied an informative report for starting to understand hunger in our community.
