About the program
Our new meal box delivery program offers access to fresh and nutritious meals throughout the Twin Cities for people experiencing changing grocery store, market, and employment access. Each week we distribute boxes with fresh grocery items to over 400 households. The boxes are delivered straight to you at no cost and contain ingredients to prepare 2 nourishing meals for a family of six, or 12 meals total. They feature products from local vendors and culturally relevant recipes inspired by Community Cooks.
The Community Cooks Meal Box Delivery Program is a collaborative effort to make fresh food accessible by the Metro Food Justice Network, including Appetite For Change, East Side Table, M Health Fairview, The Food Group, Local Crate, The Good Acre, Beth Dooley’s Kitchen, Transforming the Table, and The Sanneh Foundation!
