Our Impact

We are who we’ve been waiting for and together we create change.

‘Cause My People Gotta Eat

In partnership with our neighbors and friends, we are feeding our people, training and employing youth, and bringing people and organizations together to lift up North Minneapolis as a leader in food systems change.

Our Values

 Community Cooks Meal Boxes are part of our newest pilot program in collaboration with the Metro Food Justice Network that connects community and increases access to fresh food. Each week we’re delivering meal boxes to more than 400 households throughout the Twin Cities! Boxes are filled with fresh and locally-sourced ingredients to cook 12 meals, flavorful recipes, and an opportunity to try new foods and cook with family and friends.

In 2022, Appetite For Change celebrated our 10-year anniversary of creating impact in the North Minneapolis community and beyond. Despite the many challenges our community and organization have faced in our first decade, we continue to hold our core values at the center of our work.



 During the pandemic we couldn’t bring people together so we innovated our cooking workshops and launched the Community Cooks Meal Box program serving 400 families annually.


Community Minded

Our programs and social enterprises are led by people in our community. We listen to our youth and let them lead. Check out the mural project they did last summer with local artist Sprayfinger.



 AFC meets all new challenges by getting creative and doing whatever it takes. Minnesota winters won’t deter us from growing food. Learn more about how AFC is batting back against freezing temps in order to feed our community.
