St. Kate’s Food Insecurity Project (a collaboration with the Sisters of St. Joseph) secures two-year collaborative USDA grant for a student fellowship position

A collaborative team from the St. Kate’s Food Insecurity Project (FIP) recently received a two-year grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to hire a student fellow that will work to develop connections between St. Kate’s food insecurity networks and those of similar student-led initiatives at Hamline and Augsburg University. The planning grant will help the Food Insecurity Project at St. Kate’s build and strengthen their work to address immediate food insecurity within and beyond the St. Kate’s community as well as upstream solutions in connection with Twin Cities community food systems and St. Kate’s community-engaged courses.  The student fellow will work in collaboration with Community Leader Interns, Celeste’s Dream, The Center for Spirituality and Social Justice and the larger FIP advisory group, as well as with our external partners.
