The Minnesota Food Charter Network is a statewide network that supports and fosters shared action and capacity to implement the 99 Food Charter strategies, which are designed to increase access to healthy, safe, and affordable food for all. People, organizations, and partnerships can now become Food Charter Champions and help advance this important shared agenda for change, connect with others, and receive helpful information and resources to advance their own work.
If you support the Minnesota Food Charter or are involved in implementing one or more strategies, then you should be a Food Charter Champion!
Who can be a Minnesota Food Charter Champion?
