Current Strategy Focus
Our focus is access to quality foods that are also culturally familiar. To do this we:
- Have been getting into the community in the form of tabling at events and door knocking. We recently distributed May Day baskets that included information about food-related resources and a seed packet and seed starter soil.
- Are exploring existing resources and compiling information to share with the community, as well as partnering with organizations such as SNAP to reduce barriers to access to high quality and affordable foods.
For our monthly gathering.
Our COVID Response
We are collecting masks for community members. For as long as supplies last masks will be made available as part of Keystone's food pickup. If you have the ability to donate masks (purchased or hand-made) please contact Sierra at 612-270-8318.
