Indigenous Food Network

The Indigenous Food Network (IFN) provides an opportunity for Native-led community organizations in Minneapolis to work together to rebuild a sovereign food system by identifying and leveraging organizational and community assets. The work of the IFN builds on the cultural knowledge of community members and uses an intertribal and multigenerational approach.

We are creating a Native American urban model for food sovereignty.

Indigenous Food Network aims to:

  • Increase access and consumption of Indigenous foods in schools and programs serving Native American youth and families
  • Strengthen the Indigenous Food Network as a whole and individual organizations, to carry out the mission of the network
  • Advocate for local and regional policy change to support the development of an Indigenous food system


Mission Statement: rebuild sovereign food systems within the intertribal Native communities through collaboration.

Vision Statement: reclaim our health for future generations, recognizing that Food Is Medicine.
