Our Partners

Change happens through collaboration.

The Food Group’s partner network represents every part of our complex food system — farmers, processors and manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, hunger relief agencies, and consumers who seek access to healthy, culturally connected foods.

We’re especially grateful for our hunger relief partners, host sites for our Fare For All and Twin Cities Mobile Market programs, volunteers who donate thousands of hours each year, and the generous donors who are dedicated to ending hunger and promoting health and equity in our food system.

Every Donor Makes a Difference

It truly takes a village to achieve The Food Group’s mission of fighting hunger and nourishing our community. Thanks to all the individuals and organizations who donate their time, treasure and talent to The Food Group.
