FOOD SHELF UPDATE: Over 35 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.
