Minnehaha Food Shelf
Fighting Food Insecurity in our Minneapolis Neighborhood
The Minnehaha Food Shelf serves food for the hungry on Tuesdays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. We help distribute up to 30,000 pounds of food each month. In response to the COVID-19 virus, we have changed many things to protect both our guests and our volunteers – rigorous cleaning routines, streamlined procedures, moving outside, wearing face masks  and following the 6-foot social distancing guideline. Please be patient as we continue to improve what we do.
