LEAP into Action: Feeding Families, Empowering Youth

LEAP into Action: Feeding Families, Empowering Youth, is the Division of Indian Work’s annual fundraiser for its Horizons Unlimited (HU) food shelf. This year we are excited to also add our Youth Leadership Development Program (YLDP) to the event, thus the title change. HU has provided food for the Twin Cities American Indian community since 1952 and remains the only culturally-sensitive food shelf serving the west metro American Indian population; YLDP has worked to empower American Indian youth since 1980.
