Healthy Communities Require Access to Healthy Food Options

We believe that all of our neighbors in need should have access to vital support to be self-sufficient, stable and successful. To be successful, we know individuals and families in our community need access to healthy food resources.

Beyond our food shelf services, Keystone also offers other programs to give people access to healthy, affordable food.

Free Farmers Markets

Keystone is committed to giving people in our community access to fresh produce and healthy foods. During the growing season, Keystone offers free farmers market events and in 2018 will be hosting nine events at three community locations.

2018 Free Farmers Market Schedule

Participants should have an established need and have an income within 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. Please note, these events are open to the community and you do not need to be a food shelf participant to partake.

Participants may arrive an hour in advance to receive a ticket which marks your spot in line. Please bring your own bags or boxes to carry produce home. These events will happen rain or shine and will run until all produce is distributed.

Fare For All - Food That Makes Cents

We believe access to healthy, fresh and affordable food is a right. Keystone partners with The Food Group to offer the Fare For All Program in St. Paul’s West 7th neighborhood.

How it works

Fare For All is a great way to save money on quality, nutritious food. Fare For All buys fresh fruits, vegetables and frozen meat in bulk to save you up to 40% off grocery store prices. Produce and meats are packed into food packages to range in price from $10–$25. Fare For All is community supported and open to everyone. The more people who participate, the better.

2018 Fare For All Dates

Keystone offers the Fare For All program at the West 7th Community Center. The events are held in the gym at the community center from 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
