Food for Thought

Good in the ‘Hood is pleased to partner with Metropolitan State University and with Hamline University  in order to host the “FOOD for THOUGHT” campus food programs.

What is Food for Thought?

Working together to alleviate student hunger, FOOD for THOUGHT is designed to serve the needs of hungry students enrolled at Metropolitan State University and at Hamline University. This unique hybrid program offers registered students a generous selection of essential groceries, produce, and proteins, including culturally specific selections. In addition, we provide “Grab N Go” between class snacks to alleviate hunger and to help students maintain concentration during their classes and course work. It’s a great way for Good in the ‘Hood to partner with students to provide much-needed stability and to encourage them to continue moving forward towards their goal of graduation and the hope of a flourishing career.  

Our Objective

Our objective is to work with the students and for the students to provide nutritional subsidies that will help them move towards their respective career goal and educational objectives. In short, we are “FEEDING THE FUTURE”.
