By bringing fresh food directly to 46 low-income apartment buildings across Hennepin County, the Mobile Food Shelf ensures that those without transportation to a brick-and-mortar grocery store still have access to nutritional support. We deliver food to over 3,100 participants, primarily older adults and people with disabilities.

Over 30% of the food that we deliver is fresh fruits and vegetables. We also regularly deliver meat, eggs, bread, milk and other dairy products, and a variety of non-perishable food itemsWe deliver enough food so that each participant can receive at least 15 pounds — and often more.

See a list of our current Mobile Food Shelf sites [PDF]

Most sites receive a delivery every two weeks. Over 300 residents volunteer to receive the food, set up the food shelf in the building's community room, and distribute it to their neighbors.
