Hunger Solutions Minnesota helps feed the hungry today, while seeking long-term systemic solutions to end hunger in the future. HSM enhances the capacity of agencies that provide food to those in need, advances sound public policy and guides grassroots advocacy. HSM advocates for the effective use of federal public nutrition dollars and works to improve low-income Minnesotans’ access to all available nutrition programs, with a special focus on disadvantaged families with children and seniors.
Our goals for the current year are to:
- Support long-term solutions to hunger. We will educate, investigate and advocate for the maximum use of all public nutrition dollars available and improve low income Minnesotans’ access to all nutrition programs.
- Support agencies that are on the "front line" of hunger relief. This includes distributing over $1.7 million in funding to food shelves in 2010 and acquiring one million pounds of fresh produce and other items to help agencies distribute nutritious food to clients.
- Providing direct help to those in need through the Minnesota Food Helpline. The HelpLine helps low-income families, individuals, and seniors enroll in public nutrition programs and identify emergency food programs that can help them get the food that they need. We helped nearly 4,000 families through the HelpLine in 2010.
