history of IOCP, Interfaith outreach & community partners

It started with a promise more than 40 years ago.

We will build a community where everyone counts, where all children are cherished and protected, and where individual and family life is valued and supported by all.

Since 1979, this great community has been doing just that: leading, rallying and igniting the power of people in eight Twin Cities west metro communities to address the urgent needs of people living right here, our neighbors. What started as a small food shelf has become a resource for thousands of people in eight west Hennepin County communities.
