Food Systems Team

Local, regenerative and equitable food for our future
Who we are

Follow your food as it moves across farms, checkout counters, kitchens and waste bins. You’ll see that at every step, our food system is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, industrial farming practices degrade the environment and exploit their workforce. While Big Ag profits, the people and the environment pay.

We are fighting for a better food system – one that values people and the planet over profits. Join us in building a resilient, regenerative, and inclusive food economy that can meet the challenge of climate change.

What We Do

Each of our campaigns targets a different aspect of our food system in Minnesota, fighting food emissions on mutiple fronts.

Regenerative Agriculture

Our Regenerative Agriculture team puts pressure on lawmakers to create and enforce policies that support regenerative agriculture and find ways to connect farmers to resources they need to “go regenerative.”

Plant Rich Diets

We’re empowering eaters to substantially reduce their carbon and water use footprint just by taking on a plant rich diet. Break down structural barriers to fighting climate change on our plates with our Plant-Rich Diet team. 

Food Waste

Our Food Waste Team works to close the gaps that lead to food waste in Minnesota, helping restaurants get the resources they need to reduce their waste streams and supporting food redistribution efforts.

Listen and Learn

Nourish by MN350, our volunteer-produced podcast features the visionary leaders who are creating the regenerative, inclusive, local food economy we need to meet the challenge of climate change.
