Good in the Hood is a Minneapolis area non-profit organization dedicated to influencing, inspiring and impacting individuals, families and entire communities for good.
Since our inception in 2003, we have continued to expand our programs to provide much needed support for those who have been marginalized by difficult circumstances. Through the help of our generous volunteers and sponsors, we have been able to support Twin City area individuals and families with food, health and wellness, internships and other programs and services.
We believe that goodness and kindness are inspirational charnge agent qualities. It is our conviction that individual and community renewal can only take place when we work together with a common purpose.
We invite you to take a look at our programs and to partner with us as week see to inspire a contagious momentum of kindness.
A major part of Good in the Hood programming is providing food for those in need. It is estimated 15% of US households are facing food insecurity. Food insecurity with households having children is even significantly higher at nearly 21%.
Our goal is for each registered family to receive high quality grocery items, a delicious hot meal with a personal touch of kindness from a volunteer neighbor.

Shoe Away Hunger
Each day, thousands of children and families go to bed hungry due to lack of available resources, unemployment, underemployment, debilitating health concerns or other situational factors.
As an important funding resource, we partner with individuals, businesses, churches and schools to collect and donate all their new and used shoes, boots, slippers and footwear.
All footwear received directly benefit individuals and families, either as an everyday wearable of working with a local partner where we receive $.50/lb to support Good in the Hood’s many programs. Read More…
