North St. Paul, MN 55109
Open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday
10 a.m. - 1 p.m. (Closed Wednesday Morning)
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.
FOOD SHELF UPDATE: Over 39 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 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 other food shelves began serving the Maplewood area.
