Through our Food Market (open on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays), we provide fresh produce, meat, dairy, deli items, and non-perishable food items. We also provide diapers, pet food, personal hygiene items and household items such as toilet paper, dish soap, and paper towels. We now serve more than 600 households per week through our Food Market.
Through our Food Market service we provide pre-packed boxes, with choices for items to add on to the box, including items specific to certain cultures and specialty diet items. We also support delivery to households who are unable to get to the food shelf.
Mobile Food Shelf
Our Mobile Food Shelf provides monthly deliveries of our Food Market items to five senior living facilities. We currently have two Mobile Food Shelf sites in Woodbury and three in Oakdale. Click here to watch a video about our Mobile Food Shelf program.
Our Mobile Food Shelf also provides weekly distributions to residents of Landfall Mobile Home Park. We distribute food outside the Landfall Community Center and also provide delivery of food to the mobile homes of residents who lack transportation to pick up their food.
Through our Wildcard Wednesday service, we distribute more than 6,000 pounds of “food rescue” items to our community each week. Items distributed through Wildcard Wednesday include milk, meat, fresh produce, and deli items. This fresh food has just been taken off the grocery store shelf that same morning, and the items have a few days of use before they spoil. Wildcard Wednesday serves more than 300 households each week, and provides a large supply of healthy, fresh food for community members while also reducing waste at grocery stores.
We partner with Second Harvest Heartland to offer Drive-Up Produce Fairs on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, year-round. Through these Produce Fairs, we distribute a large supply of fresh fruit and vegetables – typically 6-7 different items are distributed at each Produce Fair. Our Produce Fairs serve more than 450 households per month. Click here to see a SWCTC video about our Produce Fairs.
