Fill Their Plate is a ministry of The Urban Refuge with the goal of bringing nourishment to those in need. We accomplish this by partnering with feeding partners in a local area and sending them food to distribute. We are located in South Minneapolis at The Urban Refuge. We launched in March of 2008 and have undergone a name change as of November 1st, 2014.
We have a sister location called Hope Full located at Evergreen Church – Bloomington. They were launched in February 2009 and underwent a name change on November 1st, 2014.
During our packing sessions volunteers package a specially formulated, dry, rice-soy casserole into serving size portions to send to people in need.

- One-half of all deaths of children under age five are associated with hunger.
- And yet, the world produces enough food to feed every man, woman and child a healthy diet every day.
