January 25, 2023

A 43-year-old Brooklyn Park man on Tuesday became the sixth person to plead guilty in the $250 million federal child nutrition fraud case connected to the Minneapolis nonprofit Feeding Our Future.

Liban Yasin Alishire admitted in a Minneapolis federal courtroom to pocketing more than $700,000 as part of a conspiracy in which he and others grossly overstated how many underprivileged children his Community Enhancement Services and Lake Street Kitchen sites served under the Federal Child Nutrition Program from late 2020 to early 2022 while under the sponsorship of Feeding Our Future.

Alishire pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. He is one of 50 people to be charged in the massive fraud case since last September.
