State sues Edina group, a Feeding Our Future site, for running 'sham nonprofit'
January 11, 2023
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is suing one of Feeding Our Future's sites, ThinkTechAct Foundation, and its leaders, arguing that they ran a "sham nonprofit," misusing funds and violating state laws.
Ellison's office filed the civil lawsuit Tuesday in Hennepin County District Court against the Edina nonprofit, its founder Mahad Ibrahim of Lewis Center, Ohio; board member Abdiaziz Shafii Farah of Savage and executive director Bianca Scott of St. Paul.
It is the attorney general's first legal action against one of Feeding Our Future's sites since the federal investigation into the organization was publicly revealed a year ago. Since then, 50 people, including Ibrahim and Farah, have been charged or indicted in the case, which prosecutors say involves more than $250 million in fraud.
