At Socorro, we believe that creating change in the community demands a wide array of skills, programs and talents. We also believe in mutual aid - providing support to those providing support. Each year, Socorro gives 10% of its gross income back to organizations that serve youth in and near North Minneapolis. Previous community partners have included Juxtaposition Arts, Cookie Cart, Sisters Need a Place, and Project Diva.
This year, we've selected Appetite for Change, a Northside non-profit that places food at the center of their change work. From providing workshops on nutrition and food security, to reclaiming vacant lots for urban agriculture, to providing jobs and leadership opportunities for youth, Appetite for Change has been a major driver toward a brighter world on the Northside and beyond.
