Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Food networks in Minnesota

Food networks are multi-stakeholder groups of people working together to advance change in the food system. More than 60 active and developing food networks are at work in Minnesota.

Health and Nutrition staff created an email list, map, and directory of Minnesota's food networks as part of Extension's leadership role in the engagement function of the Minnesota Food Charter Network. You can use these online resources to connect with food network leaders across the state, learn about their work, and engage in food systems change in your community and across Minnesota.



Region: To see which counties are included in which regions, see the map on this page: SNAP-Ed Team.

Status: Following the model of the Johns Hopkins Center for Livable Future Food Policy Council Directory, networks are listed as active (meets at least once a year), in development (formed within the last 12 months), in transition (redefining the purpose and/or the structure of the council), or inactive.
