By bringing fresh food directly to 39 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 items. We deliver enough food so that each participant can receive at least 15 pounds — and often more.
