Appetite for Change, nonprofit with a St. Paul eatery, receives $1.5M donation

In its eleven-year existence, the organization Appetite for Change has received its biggest single gift. The nonprofit will use the $1.5 million from an unnamed sponsor to fund all of its initiatives, including its restaurant in St. Paul.

An initiative called Appetite for Change works to improve community cohesion and food availability in North Minneapolis. During the rebellion that followed George Floyd’s assassination in 2020, the group served as a focal point for food delivery.

Tasha Powell, co-founder and executive director of Appetite For Change, stated, “This magnificent gift is a dream come true for our whole company. “We have the ability to dream big and to build on the services we have in place that are already a feature of the Northside communities,” says the author.

Station 81 Drink & Eatery at Union Depot in St. Paul is run by Appetite for Change. The bar and restaurant provide employment and training to locals, and all profits support AFC programs.

Along with seven urban gardens, culinary courses, youth training initiatives, and the Minneapolis location of the Breaking Bread Cafe, the group also manages seven urban gardens.
