Our Mission and Goals

The mission of Feeling Good MN is to create healthier communities throughout central Minnesota. We do that by working with community partners to engage institutions and citizens to design communities so that healthy choices are automatic, affordable and accessible. By expanding prevention efforts, engaging diverse stakeholders and making it easier to be healthy, Feeling Good MN can help lower chronic disease rates, reduce healthcare costs and ultimately attract more people to live, work and invest in our communities.

Our Areas of Focus

  • Encourage and support active lifestyles through the development of sidewalks, bike lanes and other modes of active transportation that make it safe and easy for people to be active.
  • Improve and promote the affordability, availability and accessibility of healthy foods in schools, in the workplace and communities.
  • Advocate for and support the implementation of enhanced policies that reduce and restrict smoking, tobacco and e-cigarette use.
  • Educate the community about the long and short-term health effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Identify tools and resources needed to address and prevent ACEs from having devastating effects on our communities.
