Appetite For Change

MNSBHC Legacy Fund Awards $50k Grant To Appetite For Change During 52 Weeks Of Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017 MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee (MNSBHC) Legacy Fund today awarded a $50,000 grant to Appetite For Change to support the organization’s mission of using food as a tool for building health, wealth and social change. The grant, provided by Newman’s Own Foundation, will benefit Appetite For Change’s social enterprise programs.

The MNSBHC aims to connect all Minnesotans to Super Bowl LII, extending the big game far beyond the Twin Cities borders and providing lasting impact far beyond the one-day game. The MNSBHC Legacy Fund’s 52 Week of Giving campaign is awarding 52 communities with grants over the course of the year leading up to Super Bowl LII to help improve the health and wellness of young people from all areas of Minnesota. The grant is part of the Super Bowl Legacy Grant Program, which is made possible each year by a $1 million contribution courtesy of the NFL Foundation, complemented by the Super Bowl Host Committee.

This week’s grantee, Appetite For Change, takes a holistic approach to lack of access to food, jobs and social connectedness through interconnected social enterprise programs. Its programs include cooking workshops, urban farming and job training in tandem with policy, systems and environmental change work to drive sustainable community development.

“We’re proud to be a champion for social justice in our community, and are so thankful for the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee and Newman’s Own Foundation for supporting our mission,” said Michelle Horovitz, co-founder and executive director, Appetite For Change. “Our food-based programs are creating opportunities for everyone from youth to adults to be agents of change in their own backyard.”

The Breaking Bread Café and Catering is one of Appetite For Change’s social enterprises. It increases healthy food access in North Minneapolis and creates jobs for individuals with barriers to employment. Its holistic training model combines culinary arts and food service management training with life skills and workforce readiness, to serve as a professional launch pad for North Minneapolis residents.

“Appetite for Change is doing wonderful work in the community around food access and job training,” said Kelly Giordano, Managing Director of Newman’s Own Foundation. “We are so happy to be able to support its mission, which is a square fit with our own focus on funding innovative nutrition programs.”

Today, the Breaking Bread Café hosted the MNSBHC Super Snack Challenge “All-Pro Chefs” cook-off. The 10 “All-Pro Chefs,” ages 8-14 years old were selected from more than 400 applicants and 52 Super Snack Challenge winners to make their recipes for celebrity judges. A panel of celebrity judges sampled the healthy snacks prepared by the young chefs, one of whom will be awarded the title of “Super Snack Challenge MVP,” to be announced during the Kids Tailgate Party. The Super Snack Challenge is supported by Newman’s Own Foundation.

Today’s judging panel included: Lachelle Cunningham, of Breaking Bread Café; Amalia Moreno-Damgaard of Amalia LLC; Ariana Feygin of Youth Chef; Bertrand Weber of Minneapolis Public Schools; David Fhima of Bistro 3.7.3.; Gavin Kaysen of Spoon and Stable and Bellecour; Geji McKinney-Banks of the Minnesota Vikings; Kim Ly Curry of Lil Miss Foodie; Michel Nischan of Wholesome Wave; Sean Sherman of The Sioux Chef; Sven Sungaard from KARE11; Tomme Beevas of Pimento Jamaican Kitchen; and Yia Vang of Union Kitchen.

The 10 “All-Pro Chefs” who participated today are:

Chef name, age, hometown School, grade Recipe title Kingston Brooks, 10, Minneapolis Burroughs Community School, 5th grade Bold Broccoli & Cheese Skin Potatoes Daijon Compere, 13, Duluth East High School, 9th grade Parfait of Flavor Ally Grabianowski, 14, Mankato Mankato West High School, 9th grade Stuffed Peppers Lucas Hobbs, 15, Eagan Eagan High School, 9th grade Señor Popeye’s Spanakopita Eva Hunderfund, 10 , Rochester Schaeffer Academy, 5th grade Healthy Rainbow Towers Naimah Muhammad, 11 , Minneapolis Marcy Open School, 7th grade Spiced Pumpkin Hummus Morgan Myers, 8 , Minneapolis Lake Harriet Lower Campus, 3rd grade Touchdown Chinese Lefse Chicken Roll Ups Oscar Powers Mons, 8 , St. Paul Horace Mann School, 3rd grade Touchdown Taco Cups Christofer Ramirez, 14, Royalton Royalton High School, 9th grade Colorful Black Bean Salad Sanjay Scott Redd, 13 , St. Paul Highland Middle School, 8th grade Fruit and Granola

“Organizations like Appetite For Change help create and sustain healthy communities through their critical social impact and education work,” said Dana Nelson, Vice President of Legacy and Community Partnerships, MNSBHC. “Their mission of using food as a tool for building health, wealth and social change is lock-step with our efforts to drive awareness around improving the health and wellness of Minnesotan children through our 52 Weeks of Giving campaign. We couldn’t be happier to be supporting such a dedicated, results-oriented partner.”
