About Us

  • The Ralph Reeder Food Shelf is a Community Education Program of the Mounds View Public School District. Our services are primarily available to low income families and individuals living in our school district or Ramsey County St. Anthony who may find themselves in need of food and additional resources. In 2019, there were nearly 27,000 visits by individuals to our food shelf and we distributed 724,000 pounds of food and personal care items, including fresh milk, frozen meats, produce, non-perishable food items, hygiene, cleaning and baby supplies. Approximately 900 households receive services each month. To meet the growing demand for services, we rely on the generosity of volunteers and on regular donations of dollars and food from area schools, churches, businesses, clubs and individuals.  All donations are tax deductible.
