About

As summer heats up, so do our food shelves! This summer Keystone will host community produce distributions that will offer affordable and accessible produce to our food shelf shoppers! Fresh produce is very expensive which means many of our shoppers rely on Keystone’s produce as their primary source of fruits and vegetables. We want you to help us make that happen! Keystone operates three food shelf sites providing emergency food services to more than seven thousand people every month - serving over half of Ramsey County. This opportunity to serve as a distribution host will give our clients the fresh produce that allows them to stretch their food supplies even further into the month, giving them nutritious meals even after other food shelf food, food stamps, and monthly income resources may have run out.

Spend a morning distributing fresh and local produce to our community in need! We anticipate 100-300 households participating in this event! Volunteers will work with shoppers as they go through the food shelf and bring food out to shoppers’ cars!

This is a great opportunity for corporate groups, youth groups, or anyone looking for an engaging morning of volunteering. We need 15+ volunteers each shift!
