The public has focused on Feeding Our Future ever since federal prosecutors charged 49 people last month in a wide-ranging food-aid fraud scandal. But a close read of 270 pages of criminal charges point to the alleged involvement of another similar organization. 

Authorities allege in indictments that another organization separate from Feeding Our Future is responsible for at least $57.7 million of the $250 million of fraudulent claims identified by investigators. The documents don’t name that other organization, and instead refer to it as “Sponsor A.” The indictments allege that a former employee and board member of Sponsor A received illegal kickbacks from food sites and vendors using money from the federal Child Nutrition Programs.

Documents from a lawsuit, search warrant affidavits, and a federal complaint filed in May show that the indictments’ information about Sponsor A correlates with Partners in Quality Care, a St. Paul-based sponsor organization similar to Feeding Our Future. Additionally, a previous charge and search warrant affidavits in the federal investigation directly named Partners in Quality Care as an organization that food sites allegedly used to fraudulently obtain federal food-aid money. 

No employees of Partners in Quality Care have been indicted in the case. Lawyers and a top staffer at Partners in Quality Care did not return phone calls and email messages seeking comment for this story.
