2023 Report to the Community & 2022 Annual Report

Opening Doors

Helping our neighbors access stability and resiliency, together.

Nourishing Neighbors

Hunger is an unfortunate reality for many of our neighbors, with food insecurity growing among families and older adults. Ramsey County has higher rates of food insecurity than the Minnesota state aver​age, a gap that widened during the pandemic. Keystone saw this firsthand, with participation at our food shelf programs tripling between 2021 and 2022. 

Breaking Down Barriers 

In 2022, we focused on getting more food out into the community in ways that were accessible, dignified and broke down barriers. Free farmers market and food distribution events allowed more healthy food to go to more people. Additional Foodmobile stops expanded our reach to meet neighbors where they were – something that was made possible by activating new partnerships with health clinics and other community allies. 

Keystone Youth Services help youth develop skills to succeed in school and in the community through unique afterschool programs and early employment experiences.

Best Buy Teen Tech Center

At this afterschool center, teens work on creative, high-tech projects and learn valuable skills from adult mentors. Keystone is proud to have a Best Buy Teen Tech Center and be a member of the Clubhouse Network, a collaboration with the MIT Media Lab.
