The Neighbors’ Food Shelf is available to people in our community experiencing need.

No appointment is necessary to visit the Neighbors food shelf, however, we ask guests to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to our daily closing time to be served.

Please bring a photo ID and a current address verification with you.

Thanks to our generous donors, including individuals and many local businesses, Neighbors is able to provide a variety of foods to clients including milk, frozen meats, fresh produce, cereal, canned foods and often much more.  Clients choose food from our shelves that best meets their wants and needs, with help from one of our volunteers.


Looking to donate to the Food Shelf?

Since 1972, Neighbors has been providing food and hygiene items to a growing number of people from northern Dakota County. At a glance, the food shelf:

  • Serves more than 600 families each month
  • Provides clients with a week’s worth of food during each visit (about 110 lbs. per family)
  • Helps clients find ways to use foods they may not be familiar with or wouldn’t normally try via the monthly Menu Makers program

To continue serving the community, Neighbors needs your help. Donations of food and funds help those in your neighborhood who may not have enough to eat. To find out what the food shelf is currently in need of, contact info@neighborsmn.org to sign up for our Needs Updates.

Donations can dropped off at the food shelf – located at 222 Grand Avenue West in South St. Paul – between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Ring the doorbell next to the garage door on the lower level.
