How did Appetite For Change start?
Our three founders, LaTasha Powell, Michelle Horovitz, and Princess Haley, came together to build an organization that offered people in North Minneapolis opportunities to connect with community, eat and cook fresh, local, and wholesome food, and learn more about building health and community capacity.
What is your mission?
Appetite For Change uses food as a tool to create health, wealth, and social change.
What is food justice?
Food justice can look like a community claiming its right to ownership of its food system—the right to grow, sell, access, and eat food that is fresh, nutritious, culturally-relevant, and grown with integrity for the wellbeing of the land, workers, and animals. We believe food justice leads to a strong local food system, a sustainable environment, and community healing.
What do you do at Appetite For Change?
We’re a community led nonprofit organization that uses food as a tool to build health, wealth, and social change in North Minneapolis. Through youth and workforce development programs, social enterprises, and policy initiatives, we build community capacity to make our own change.
What is the vision?
We believe food is the key ingredient to nourishing individual and communal wellbeing. Systemic barriers affecting the Northside make accessing fresh foods a challenge for many. By bringing people together to learn, cook, eat, and grow food, we create change that lasts.
