Food and Meal Programs for Families in Minneapolis

There are several programs in Minneapolis that can help provide nutritious food and meals for you and your family when your income does not cover all of your expenses. 


Make sure to call the organization first—some places need you to make an appointment before visiting. You also need to make sure you qualify for their food shelf and meals.
