Legal Services Advocacy Project For 100 years, Legal Aid has worked in pursuit of helping Minnesota’s most vulnerable citizens gain access to their basic rights for safety, shelter, food, health care and education. And with the support of hundreds of Minnesotans, they’ve had the privilege to change lives along the way.

University of Minnesota Co-op Extension Extension researchers and educators engage individuals and organizations in asking the challenging questions to discover science-based answers that make a difference. Together, they create a better world for today and tomorrow by: keeping our food safe and affordable, preparing today's youth to thrive in a complex world, ensuring Minnesota communities are strong, improving our environment, and helping families make better decisions. 

Second Harvest Heartland Second Harvest Heartland is one of the nation’s largest, most efficient and most innovative food banks. In 2014, they delivered more than 74 million meals to over 1,000 food shelves, pantries and other agency partner programs serving 59 counties in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Additionally, they are a member of Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks serving every state in the United States. 

Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, FoodShare The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign brings together hundreds of companies, civic groups, schools and congregations to help keep 300 food shelves statewide stocked throughout the year. This grassroots campaign is their most enduring program.
