Description

Help feed your community with Today's Harvest, powered by Open Cupboard. Today's Harvest relies on the hard work of volunteers like you to serve families in need, so this role is perfect for anyone looking for a physically active and fun way to help their community!

Today’s Harvest is a new way for people to access fresh, healthy food. A different type of food access model, it works to increase food access while also reducing food waste in the community. The food people choose from will change every day based on our food rescue. The market is a quick and easy way for people to stretch their food budget. Every visit, they will get a 1 to 2 day supply of fresh produce, bread, meat and other foods. People are welcome to visit the market as often as they need it.

Today’s Harvest is open six days a week. There is a lot to do every day, and we wouldn't be able to do it without our incredible volunteers.

Mission Statement

Our unrelenting focus is to provide nutritious food to our neighbors in a respectful manner while engaging our community in the fight against hunger.

Description

Open Cupboard (formerly known as CCEFS) is a food shelf located in Oakdale. Currently, we provide food to more than 4,000 families each week through our regular Drive-Up food shelf visits, Today's Harvest Market, Delivery Program, and our Mobile Food Shelf.

During these difficult times, we know that there are many in our community who may be looking for help from Open Cupboard for the first time, or may have relied on us in the past and need us now more than ever.

Our primary service area is Oakdale, Woodbury, Landfall, and South Maplewood. However, our services are available to anyone who needs them, regardless of where they live.

To meet the ever-growing need in the community, we are in need of more volunteers! We are serving more families than ever, and we need YOUR help to keep going! There is a lot to do every day, and we wouldn't be able to keep up without our incredible volunteers.

If you have any questions on getting involved, contact Shannon at (651) 413-2685 or email Shannon@opencupboard.org.
