Flavor of the North

United Way of Northeastern Minnesota regrets to announce the 2020 Flavor of the North event has been canceled.

We had hoped to postpone this beloved event for another date this year, but due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of the Stay at Home order and the stress put on local restaurants at this time, it has become clear that won't be possible.

While we are extremely disappointed, this decision has become necessary to put our community members’ health and safety first.

Stay tuned for details on the 2021 event!

Flavor of the North proceeds benefit UWNEMN's Buddy Backpack Program which provides supplemental backpacks full of nutritious, child-friendly food to at-risk children each Friday or weekend break they head home from school.  

There are currently more than 1,000 children enrolled in this program. To learn more about Buddy Backpacks, click here!
