The Minnesota Food Charter Network is a statewide network, rooted in Minnesota Food Charter strategies, that supports and fosters shared action towards healthy food access for all.
The Minnesota Food Charter Network was formed in concert with the Minnesota Food Charter to support and track statewide implementation of Food Charter strategies through regional food networks and myriad other organizations. In coming years, the Minnesota Food Charter Network will grow into a supportive ‘ecosystem’ of people, information, relationships, and resources positioned to implement the 99 Food Charter policy and systems change strategies.
The Minnesota Food Charter Network is supported by the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the University of Minnesota Extension. This material was funded in part by USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP – with funds received from and through the Minnesota Department of Human Services. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. The Minnesota Food Charter Network is hosted by the University of Minnesota’s Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives Institute.
The success of the network depends on the participation of diverse partners, including coalitions, networks, organizations, funders, and individuals like you.
