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.

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.

2019 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.
