The Fruit of the Vine Food Shelf announces the opening of a Tuesday evening weekly distribution starting Tuesday April 4th from 3pm to 6pm at 1280 Arcade Street, Saint Paul, Minnesota location.

This expanded access is part answer to the growing use of the food shelf and the needs of our communities we serve. The new Tuesday service is in partnership with Family Values For Life and the Contenders for the Faith Church of Saint Paul.

You can make a difference in the lives of many of our Neighbors within our communities by donating money or non-perishable foods this month during the Minnesota FoodShare Campaign. Your contributions are matched by the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches making your gift an even larger impact. Our goal this year is $25,000; we hope you can become a part of the hunger solution and join our Sustainer Club as well.
