Food Services
  • Second Harvest Heartland – one of the area’s largest food assistance programs, helping with COVID-related emergency meals.
  • Minneapolis Food Shelves – entire network of food shelves and ancillary services in Minneapolis
  • Minnesota Central Kitchen – a collaborative effort with restaurants, caterers and hunger relief organizations joining forces to help short-term hunger needs in the community. Here’s a great article.
  • Valley Outreach (Stillwater, MN), Meals from the Heart (Stillwater, MN), ICAA Food Pantry (Burnett Co, WI), and NWCSA Food Pantry (Northwest WI) – food shelves supporting their neighborhood populations. (Note: there are many neighborhood-centric food banks and they are all in need of assistance with monetary and food donations right now due to the sudden increase of needy families)
