2021 food distribution opportunities

Hennepin County will grant $1.5 million to assist providers working to meet residents’ food needs. This opportunity is a very intentional effort on behalf of the County to address food insecurity issues in our communities, in recognition of the hardships and economic need created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This round of grants will cover food only. Hennepin County is examining a longer-term, more sustainable approach to solving food insecurity.
