Somali government official tied to alleged fraud in Feeding Our Future investigation.

A government official in Somalia allegedly took millions of dollars in federal aid intended to feed children in Minnesota and instead purchased cars, real estate, and travel. 

Qamar Ahmed Hassan, a registered nurse and the owner of S&S Catering, left Minnesota and took a job as a regional state minister in Somalia whose portfolio includes human rights and helping women and children. 

Last month, investigators in the U.S. alleged that Qamar and her associates misappropriated millions of dollars through a federal child nutrition program, administered by the Minnesota Department of Education.

Qamar’s company, S&S Catering, received reimbursements through Feeding Our Future, a St. Anthony-based nonprofit responsible for administering federal funds to feed disadvantaged children across the state, and Partners in Nutrition, another Minnesota nonprofit that managed food aid.
