North Country Food Alliance

Increasing Access to Healthy Food

100% Community Funded


Who We Are


North Country Food Alliance is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization that serves the Twin Cities Metro Area. Our mission is to promote food justice by increasing access to healthy food. To accomplish this, we deliver food to organizations that serve people in need, build community gardens, and prepare community meals.

Watch us in action in the video below!


What We Do


Rescue & Share

Our foodshare program collects surplus food from grocery stores and distribution centers and transports it to charities that serve those in need.


Create & Educate

Our garden program builds and maintains community gardens in the Twin Cities, teaching people to grow healthy food and creating more access.


Cook & Serve

We recently purchased a commercial food truck, which we will use to serve free meals, teach free cooking classes, and cater community-oriented events that align with our mission and values.


Proudly Worker-Run


Our organization functions as a worker-run democracy.  There are no hierarchies, and we work collectively to get the work done.  This model keeps our workplace running smoothly, and keeps more of your donation benefiting our programs, rather than someone’s management salary.


Did We Come

to Your Door?

We come to each neighborhood just once a year to collect financial donations. Our programs thrive because of the generous contributions of thousands of community members.

Thank you!
