The White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf is here for those who live in the White Bear Lake Area School District No. 624 who are experiencing an emergency or financial difficulty.  We provide seven days of food including fresh produce, dairy products and meat.  We schedule "Client Choice Shopping Appointments" for Monday Evenings and Tuesday - Fridays during the day.  Please call (651) 407-5310 to schedule an appointment. We also have special programs to provide groceries for the November and December holidays.

 

The Food Shelf is supported by the generous donations of food and cash from individuals, businesses, schools, churches, associations and other community groups. In addition, more than 90 people volunteer their time to ensure that food is stocked and ready for distribution to families five days a week. 

 

 


 

 

The White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf recently accomplished meeting the standards of the Charities Review Council.
