Improving Food Access for our Community

Our food shelves in Ramsey County are designed to support those who need food assistance and other help. Along with our Foodmobile, crisis support and additional food programs, we are working to strengthen our community by giving ample access to our neighbors in need.

Not only does Keystone aim to give families access to food and emergency services, but we provide healthy choices and supplemental food sources to keep families on the right track – empowering them to build self-sufficiency and healthy eating habits.

Access Food shelf Services

To be eligible for food shelf services, you must:

  • Establish a need, seeking emergency food services

What to Bring:

It is helpful if you bring the following items with you each time you visit a Keystone food shelf as it helps with our program management but these items are not required for you to receive food shelf services:

  • A photo ID
  • A current piece of mail (within 60 days) with a current address for the head of household and any other adults living in the home
  • Proof of ID (medical card, school ID or social security card) for children under age 18

Current Service Delivery

Due to the Coronavirus (Covid 19), we have changed to emergency services and are not able to offer full choices in the food shelf at this time. We are also not able to provide a public restroom.

Upon arrival to the food shelf, please form an orderly line outside for food shelf services. In line, please stand at least six feet apart. Only one household will be served at a time to allow greater social distancing. When the household ahead of you exits the food shelf lobby, you may enter the lobby. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we make our services as accessible and safe as possible for everyone.
