Food Shelves – St. Paul Area

The following food shelves require a photo ID, social security card, or proof of residence (e.g., electric bill, gas bill, medical card, etc.) since they serve only those people who live within designated areas. They will serve a person only once a month. If you are unsure which food shelf serves your area, please call the Minnesota Food Helpline (1-888-711-1151) or the United Way’s 2-1-1 hotline by dialing “211” on a land-line phone. (If you are using a cell phone, call 651-291-0211 to reach this hotline.)
