Community Resources

Part of our response to COVID-19 is ensuring that our community, and all Minnesotans, have access to resources that may be able to help them through this unprecedented time. As part of that effort, we've created the following list of available community resources and volunteer opportunities. We hope to continue adding additional resources and keep the list updated for the duration of the pandemic. Please contact us if you work for, or know of, an organization or resource that we should consider adding.

 

Food Resources

CAIR-MN: Job Loss Due to COVID-19

While closed throughout the country, many public schools are providing alternative nutritional assistance to families in need. Check with your local or county department of education or your ISD (“Independent School District”) to see if such a program is available to supplement your child's nutritional requirements. Examples include:

Support from Meals on Wheels or Help at Your Door may be available:

Hunger Solutions: Search for food shelves, senior resources, free meals, discount grocery, and farmers market near you.

Second Harvest: Partner Agency List

Soup for You Cafe & Food Shelf:  Serves lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Diners pay whatever they feel is a fair price — or whatever they are able to.
