You can come to the food shelf 12 times in a year's time (only once in the same month).

You need to call Monday for a Tuesday appointment, Tuesday for a Thursday appointment,
        Thursday for a Friday appointment, and Friday for a Monday appointment. (Some
        Wednesday evening appointments may be scheduled for clients who work during the day.)

Please be prompt for your appointment. Also, do not come too early as the volunteers need
        time to pack your groceries. Make your own arrangements for transportation as we
        do not provide rides.

You must bring two forms of ID: A current driver's license (or a picture ID if you do not
        have a driver's license) and a current utility bill showing you live in the food shelf area.

Do not schedule an appointment unless you know you can make it. You must pick up your
        food the day of your appointment. It will not be held over for you until the next day. If you call
        and cancel on the day of your appointment you must wait two weeks to reschedule. If you
        do not call and do not show up, you will have to wait a month to make a new appointment.

To receive services:
There are no paid staff at the North St. Paul Area Food Shelf.  All workers at the food shelf are volunteers.
FOOD SHELF UPDATE: Over 38 years ago the North St. Paul Area Food Shelf was organized and it served only North St. Paul residents. Then about 20 years ago the boundaries were expanded to include Maplewood and Oakdale residents. Because of the difficulty now in servicing this large of an area, a decision was made to just serve North St. Paul and Oakdale residents. In June 2012, our food shelf discontinued servicing Maplewood, and two food shelf are now serving the Maplewood area. Now with our director's retirement in 2018, we are looking at different options for next year.
