Over 100 classrooms are on our teaching schedule for the rest of the year - and we don't want to miss a single one!

Midwest Food Connection teaches kids how their food choices connect to their bodies, communities, and the environment through interactive food lessons across the Twin Cities. Using storytelling, art, music, hands-on cooking, gardening, and tasting, we excite children about healthy food. 

Instead of demanding that kids eat their vegetables, we invite them to grow their own food, sing a song, make a dish, and discover for themselves the good taste of healthy food. In turn, our students learn to care for themselves, each other, and the environment around us. See our impact on students firsthand.

We have a long list of classrooms anxiously awaiting their chance to experience our lessons - please contribute today to ensure ALL students get the food education they deserve!

Thanks to supporters like you, we taught over 5,000 students last year. Food education is missing in the curriculum and Midwest Food Connection is working to fill this gap.  Let’s give all students the education they deserve.
