Event Details

We’ve pooled our money and raised some more, learned about nutrition and food justice, and made some important decisions about how we want to make a difference – now let’s have some fun!  Join us at Give 4 Good, a celebration of this year's grants.


Monday, June 11th
Hell's Kitchen

6:00-8:00 p.m.

 

Get the Inside Scoop
Fourth Generation is giving away over $30,000 to make healthy, affordable food a reality for people in Minneapolis, the Twin Cities, and beyond! Come meet the amazing organizations we're supporting this year and hear how they're changing the shape and flavor of our community for the better.

  • Kids Cook Classroom will teach kids about nutrition and help them grow, cook, and eat healthy food.
  • Minnesota Food Association will make sure immigrant farmers have the training, networking, and educational opportunities they need to succeed.
  • Perspectives will teach homeless and at-risk pre-school kids about nutrition, food safety, and cooking in a classroom kitchen.
  • Sustainable Farming Association of MN will promote sustainable agriculture among farmers and help twin cities co-ops meet market demands.

 

Bringing Healthy Back
We will hear from Bertrand Weber, Minneapolis Public Schools' first Director of Nutrition and Culinary Services. Remember the mystery meat on a bun from the school cafeteria?  Hopefully, the next generation won't. Weber will tell us about the different ways our community is bringing healthy back.

 

  Want to Give 4 Good?
Fourth Generation, a program of The Minneapolis Foundation, is the place for young professionals to learn about effective, meaningful charitable giving. Members pool their resources, learn about an issue in the community, make an investment in local nonprofits, and make a difference. 

Whether you’re part of a family of givers, starting out on your own or you give with money, time or talents – Fourth Generation teaches skills to help you get the most out of your giving.

Thank you to The Jay and Rose Phillips Foundation of Minnesota and The Minneapolis Foundation who matched contributions by Fourth Generation members and helped amplify our impact.
