Food Shelves for South Minneapolis Residents

Food shelves can usually be used once every 30 days.  Each food shelf has different rules and ways that you sign up to get the food, so it is very important that you read about if you are eligible to receive food, when you can get it, the hours the food shelf is open and other important information.  If you have any questions, make sure you call the food shelf before you go.
