Minnesota Department of Education slammed for oversight of Feeding Our Future

The Minnesota Department of Education failed to investigate at least 30 complaints related to Feeding Our Future from 2018 to 2021. That's among the findings in a Thursday report from the state's Legislative Auditor.

Federal charges were filed against dozens of people connected to the now defunct Twin Cities nonprofit. Prosecutors allege they siphoned $250 million away from programs designed to feed children during the pandemic.

Also, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating after Minneapolis police fatally shot a man Wednesday.
