We're here to work together

The Creating a Hunger Free North Dakota Coalition is a statewide network of organizations, agencies, businesses and individuals working toward the vision of a hunger-free North Dakota.

We are daring to ask the question, “Can we eliminate hunger in our state? Few other states are closer to this goal than North Dakota.

Coalition members include the state's food bank and its network of food and meal providers; faith-based organizations; groups that advocate for the interests of seniors and children; groups that address the needs of people with low and moderate incomes; health and nutrition groups; agriculture organizations and state agencies - health, human services, agriculture and education.
