Support a network committed to an equitable food system

Minnesota’s metro cities and counties do not operate in a vacuum. We operate in a regional economy that drives the success of the state. MFAN is comprised of over 400 food systems partners from the seven-county metro region who seek to advance equitable access to healthy food for everyone in the region. We come together to learn, connect, and take collective action through policy and systems approaches that advance our mission.

Your donation makes an immediate impact

MFAN is an inviting, innovative, and fun network seeking to advance a bold mission of equitable access to healthy food for all. Your donation will be used to support the network by funding supplies such as food, childcare, and room rental for meetings as well as providing stipends for partners to provide leadership to emerging Action Teams.

Learn more about the network, join us at our next event, and follow us on facebook.

MFAN Success

  • Transforming metro area food shelves to create welcoming and appealing environments to access healthy and culturally appropriate foods through the SuperShelf initiative and our Food Shelf Action Team.
  • Shifting comprehensive planning language in all seven counties to include language about access to healthy food through our Local Government Action Team.
  • Engaging in Critical Conversations on Race in the Food System to support partners in no longer upholding and only dismantling institutional racism in the metro area.
  • Connecting community members, elected officials, and food systems leaders through the Metro Community Meal where over 165 people came together in November 2017 to envision a food system we all deserve over a family-style meal.


The Metro Food Access Network links University of Minnesota Extension's Center for Family Development with Minnesota Statewide Health Improvement Partnerships in the MSP metro.
