Food & Goods – Keystone Community Services

Food & Goods

Donating in-kind gifts support Keystone's mission. We welcome donations of food, personal care items, used bikes and so much more.

Your Support is Vital

Donations of food and personal care items are so appreciated and vital for our food shelves! Your contributions and support help providing nourishing support to your neighbors in need.

In addition to the in-kind donations we receive from the community, Keystone is also able to stretch its dollars further by working with purchasing programs that help support our neighbors. With your financial support, we are able to purchase items in bulk from food banks.

MN FoodShare Campaign

February 27 to April 9, 2023

Last year, Minnesotans made over 5 million visits to food shelves which is 2 million more visits than the year before. With the high cost of groceries and other expenses, more neighbors are turning to food shelves to help stretch their budgets.

The Minnesota FoodShare Month campaign brings together organizations, businesses, faith communities, and individuals to help stock and support food shelves across the state. This month  your impact is increased because all donations (cash and in-kind) are proportionally matched during the FoodShare campaign.

Your generosity during our FoodShare campaign will immediately support neighbors in need. Give today to help fill our shelves!
