47 People Charged: NPO Is Center Of Suspected $250M Fraud

Federal charges have been filed against 47 people in what might be one of the largest frauds involving nonprofit organizations — $250 million in government COVID relief money that was supposed to feed children. 

Among those indicted is Aimee Bock, founder and executive director of Feeding Our Future in Minneapolis, Minn., a nonprofit that was a sponsor participating in the federal Child Nutrition Program. The indictments charge Bock with overseeing a fraud scheme involving organizations, some of which were held out as foundations, operating sites under Feeding Our Future’s sponsorship. 

Bock appeared in court yesterday and pleaded not guilty. She was released from custody but with restrictions on her movements.

Feeding Our Future went from receiving and disbursing approximately $3.4 million in federal funds in 2019 to nearly $200 million in 2021, according to information provided by the Justice Department. Feeding Our Future opened more than 250 sites throughout Minnesota and it is alleged that leaders fraudulently obtained and disbursed more than $240 million in Federal Child Nutrition Program funds. The defendants are accused of using the money to purchase luxury vehicles, residential and commercial real estate in Minnesota as well as property in Ohio and Kentucky, real estate in Kenya and Turkey, and to fund international travel.

The 47 defendants are charged across six separate indictments and three criminal informations with charges of conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering, and bribery.

The government alleges the defendants obtained, misappropriated, and laundered millions of dollars in program funds that were intended as reimbursements for the cost of serving meals to children. The defendants allegedly exploited changes in the program intended to ensure underserved children received adequate nutrition during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Federal Child Nutrition Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), is a federally-funded program designed to provide free meals to children in need. The USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service administers the program throughout the nation by distributing federal funds to state governments. In Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) administers and oversees the Federal Child Nutrition Program. 

Meals funded by the federal Child Nutrition Program are served by “sites.” Each site participating in the program must be sponsored by an authorized sponsoring organization. Sponsors must submit an application to MDE for each site. Sponsors are also responsible for monitoring each of their sites and preparing reimbursement claims for their sites. The USDA then provides MDE federal reimbursement funds on a per-meal basis. MDE provides those funds to the sponsoring agency who, in turn, pays the reimbursements to the sites under its sponsorship. The sponsoring agency retains 10 to 15 percent of the funds as an administrative fee.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the USDA waived some of the standard requirements for participation in the Federal Child Nutrition Program. Among other things, the USDA allowed for-profit restaurants to participate in the program, as well as allowed for off-site food distribution to children outside of educational programs.

As part of the charged scheme, Feeding Our Future employees recruited individuals and entities to open Federal Child Nutrition Program sites throughout the state of Minnesota. These sites, created and operated by the defendants and others, claimed to be serving meals to thousands of children a day within just days or weeks of being formed. The defendants created dozens of shell companies to enroll in the program as Federal Child Nutrition Program sites. The defendants also created shell companies to receive and launder the proceeds of their fraudulent scheme.

The defendants allegedly created and submitted false documentation. They are charged with submitting fraudulent meal count sheets purporting to document the number of children and meals served at each site. The defendants allegedly submitted false invoices purporting to document the purchase of food to be served to children at the sites. The defendants also allegedly submitted fake attendance rosters purporting to list the names and ages of the children receiving meals at the sites each day. 

Prosecutors said that the rosters were created using fake names. For example, one roster was created using names from a website called www.listofrandomnames.com. Because the program only reimbursed for meals served to children, other defendants used an Excel formula to insert a random age between seven and 17 into the age column of the rosters.

In exchange for sponsoring these sites’ participation in the program, Feeding Our Future received more than $18 million in administrative fees, which prosecutors said they were not entitled. In addition to the administrative fees, Feeding Our Future employees solicited and received bribes and kickbacks from individuals and companies sponsored by Feeding Our Future. Many of these kickbacks were paid in cash or disguised as “consulting fees” paid to shell companies created by Feeding Our Future employees to make them appear legitimate.

When MDE attempted to perform necessary oversight regarding the number of sites and amount of claims being submitted, Bock and Feeding Our Future gave false assurances that they were monitoring the sites under its sponsorship and that the sites were serving the meals as claimed. When MDE employees pressed Bock for clarification, Bock accused MDE of discrimination and unfairly scrutinizing Feeding Our Future’s sites. When MDE denied Feeding Our Future site applications, Bock and Feeding Our Future filed a lawsuit accusing MDE of denying the site applications due to discrimination in violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

“Today’s indictments describe an egregious plot to steal public funds meant to care for children in need in what amounts to the largest pandemic relief fraud scheme yet,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray. “The defendants went to great lengths to exploit a program designed to feed underserved children in Minnesota amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, fraudulently diverting millions of dollars designated for the program for their own personal gain. These charges send the message that the FBI and our law enforcement partners remain vigilant and will vigorously pursue those who attempt to enrich themselves through fraudulent means.”
