How food can be a vehicle for social change

Appetite for Change believes when families reclaim the kitchen as a place to bond with and educate their children, communities become stronger and more equipped for the struggles of daily life. Bringing people together around food is one way to build community for creating social, racial, and economic justice and change.

Breaking Bread Cafe & Catering, a social enterprise of Appetite for Change, is serving real food for real people in North Minneapolis. The café offers a unique style of flavorful and wholesome comfort foods with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.

These dishes are inspired by the diverse culture of North Minneapolis, drawing input directly from the community. But this is no ordinary café, it’s also used to train and employ youth and adults from the community.

Breaking Bread is creating new jobs, training local residents, and giving confidence to other entrepreneurs who will become inspired to bring new business to North Minneapolis.
