LEC Awarded Consolidated Communications Community Fund Grant

Living Earth Center is honored and grateful for Consolidated Communications Community Foundation's support of our Community Food Connection Program. 

Their $2,500 grant will support LEC's  Community Food Connection Program (CFC). Through the CFC LEC directly connects people to the land and to healthy, organic produce.  We are able to confront the issues of food insecurity and sovereignty in our community collaboratively through a multi-faceted approach.  From youth educational programming to navigating ways for emerging growers to enter the local food economy, LEC works with our Community Partners to create pathways to food and land access and agency over food choices.

The Consolidated Communications Community Fund of the Mankato Area Foundation has award $150,000 in grants to 22 local nonprofits in the area.

The Consolidated Fund focuses its support on local programs that meet critical community needs, such as hunger and homelessness, along with initiatives that provide opportunities for innovative education and learning.
