Twin Cities Response

Our Response

As the Twin Cities continues cleanup efforts of the over 500 damaged and looted business, and are still amid disruptions of access to food and supplies for thousands, requests for assistance have come in many forms. We have been working daily to respond to the community needs.

Our response efforts so far have included delivering food to multiple community pop-up and established food banks in Minneapolis and St. Paul, assisting community food banks cleaning, organizing, and distributing food and supplies, and clearing debris/disinfecting local minority and women-owned businesses.
