Serving Anoka County For 40 Years

Volunteers have been providing emergency food and clothing to area residents of Anoka County for over forty years. The food shelf is a local nonprofit; non-government agency. While volunteers will serve anyone in need of food throughout Anoka County one time, our services are targeted to residents of Andover, Anoka, Coon Rapids, Nowthen, Ramsey, and part of Champlin.

How It Works

Once every 30 days, clients can choose a free 3-day supply of food based on the size of their family.

Where It’s From

The food which is offered has been donated by the local community or purchased though one of the food banks.

What We Offer

Some personal care items are also offered each visit. The food choices and personal care items can’t be guaranteed due to occasional supply limits.

What You Need

To request food, you must have a photo ID and a current piece of mail for each adult living in the home.
