In addition to food shelves, Keystone offers other ways to access fresh food including Free Farmers Market Events and by hosting Fare for All.
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.
Keystone is committed to giving people in our community access to fresh produce and healthy foods. These popular summer events are back again in 2020, but in a socially-distanced, safe way. At all of our Free Farmers Market events in 2020, you will be welcome to pick up a bag with pre-packed fresh vegetables and fruit.
2020 Free Farmers Market Events
Offering a Drive Up Events in 2020
We encourage driving to these events and our volunteers will load bags directly into your car.Walk-ups are also welcome.
open to anyone in need in our community
Anyone with an established need for food support is welcome to participate in these events. These events do not count as a monthly food shelf service so everyone is welcome to participate.
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. All are welcome to shop!
Fare for All is back, with a new drive-up delivery model.
This event will now take place in the parking lot of the West 7th Community Center with a drive-up delivery model. Please follow signs and staff direction on the day of the event.
Our first event is scheduled for Friday, July 10. The event will run from 10:00 a.m. – Noon at the West 7th Community Center, located at 265 Oneida Street, St. Paul, MN.
We know for so many people in our community, things in their lives may not feel as stable as they once did. If you or someone you know needs support please know our programs are here for you and we encourage you to refer people to us as well. We can get people connected to food shelf services, meals on wheels, crisis assistance, or refer to other community services as we are able.
Looking for additional food support?
In July we’ll also be hosting Foodmobile distributions, Free Farmers Market events and a Fare for All event, all in safe, socially-distanced ways. Check out our events page for the full schedule and check back regularly as more events are added.
