    How to set up an appointment:
    We are open Monday through Friday by appointment (day and evening shopping hours are available). Please call the food shelf appointment line at 651-621-6280 to schedule an appointment to receive food. UPDATE - due to covid concerns we are continuing to offer safe and contactless curbside pickups at this time along with deliveries to homebound seniors and disabled adults.



    Requested items to bring with you:
    Identification for head of house and mail with current address (or other proof of address) for every adult in your household.
    Identification for each child on the first visit only  (examples include birth certificates, medical id cards, report cards, etc).


    In person shopping (when covid restrictions are lifted)

    What to expect:
    Food shelf clients will meet with a food shelf staff member on their first visit and will be asked to fill out basic household information regarding income and assistance. Food will be received the same day. Clients are eligible to use the food shelf once a month or more often if approved by a food shelf staff member. Each houshold will choose their own groceries and will receive approximately 7 days worth of nutritionally balanced food items (including meats and milk), fresh produce and deli items, personal hygiene items, and cleaning supplies, along with additional resources, and referrals to other low income programs and services. A typical family of four will receive approximately 100 pounds of food. Prepacked food bags are available for same day emergencies when regular shopping appointments may not be available. If you cannot make your appointment, please call 651-621-6280 to cancel.
