A Registered Nurse is on hand during programming hours to provide blood pressure checks and assist guests in any way they can.

 

We welcome your financial contributions which will assist us in purchasing what is needed for this program in order to provide FREE meals to meet this basic human need.

Produce Distribution

Produce Distribution is held in late summer and early fall.  In partnership with Second Harvest Heartland, we distribute fresh produce FREE of charge to people in need. In 2020, we distributed approximately 31,854 pounds. This is a rain or shine event. Please see the 'Calendar & Events' tab for exact dates as that time of the year draws near. Your financial contributions allow us to cover the costs of hosting this event.

Food Shelf

On Tuesdays, we provide food to those in need. Food shelf hours are 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm. Guests should come to the door nearest the northeast corner of the building to receive service. Please see our calendar on the 'Calendar & Events' page of our website for food shelf dates as they vary.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions our current method of distribution is prepackaged bags. Food shelf guests are allowed one visit per calendar month and must complete an eligibility form once per calendar year. We do not offer delivery service. 

 

We reserve the right to change or cancel the food shelf dates and hours at any time without prior notice. We can be reached by phone at 651-646-6549 ext. 4.
