Summary:

We have noticed a rising need for accessible healthy food in East St. Paul, CLUES is responding to that need by creating Pop-up Food Shelves on Monday evenings and Wednesday afternoons. The Food Shelf volunteers will provide support in sorting and distributing food items to all participants of the CLUES Pop-up food shelf.
