We believe that goodness and kindness are inspirational change agent qualities. It is our conviction that individual and community renewal can only take place when we work together to advance people through a practical expression of God's love and kindness.
We invite you to take a look at our programs and to partner with us as week see to inspire a contagious momentum of kindness.
Fighting Food Insecurity is at the Heart of Our Program
A major part of Good in the 'Hood's programming is serving as a Minneapolis partner for Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities. We're pleased to be able to work together in order to share good news, provide hot meals and essential groceries for thousands of hungry people who are suffering from poverty, homelessness and personal brokenness. It is estimated 15% of US households are facing food insecurity. Food insecurity with households having children is significantly higher at nearly 21%.
Our goal is for each registered family to receive high quality grocery items, a delicious hot meal with a personal touch of God's kindness from a volunteer neighbor.
Since 2010, we have served over 1,316,291 pounds to our friends and neighbors. This we year served nearly a million pounds of total food, up 179% in just two years!
Our sincere thanks and appreciation for opportunity to work together with our primary partners Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities and Cedarcrest Church along with our many donors, sponsors and volunteers. Working together as a community of purpose is helping us to impact lives!
