Appetite for Change uses food as a tool to build health, wealth and social change. They believe that when families reclaim the kitchen as a place to bond with and educate their children, then communities become stronger and more able to deal with the struggles of daily life. Bringing people together around food is one way to build capacity for creating social, racial and economic justice and bettering communities. Nexus funds will support Appetite for Change’s development of a social enterprise, Breaking Bread Café & Catering opening in North Minneapolis in April 2015. The kitchen will provide commercial food preparation space, as well as job-training opportunities. The café will serve the broader public delicious, fresh and culturally relevant foods as a way to not only change the food environment on West Broadway, but also earn revenue to support programming.
