Use this template (click here) to write a letter to your Senator and Representative. The goal of the letter is to welcome Legislator's to the 2019 Legislative Session and highlight Homes for All.

Submit a recipe (click here)! For so many of us, a home cooked meal is a way to extend the feeling of home to our loved ones. We bring food to our neighbors when they are sick or to celebrate a milestone, we gather friends and family around a meal to share the warmth of our home and we donate what we can to those who are unsure when or where they will have their next meal. This legislative session, we want to celebrate this tradition by collecting your favorite recipes that remind you of home. We will compile submissions to spread the feeling of home across Minnesota.
