Welcome to the ACBC Food Shelf!
Our volunteers have been providing emergency food and clothing to area residents of Anoka County for forty-two years. The food shelf is a local nonprofit; not a government entity. While volunteers will serve anyone in need of food throughout Anoka County one time, our services are targeted to residents of: Andover, Anoka, Coon Rapids, Nowthen, Oak Grove, Ramsey and part of Champlin.
Our clients receive a 3 day supply of food. Volunteers offer a standard food box based on family size plus meat, juice, margarine and milk choices. Clients are also allowed to choose various food items which have been donated or purchased from the local food banks. Some personal care products are also offered each visit. Our food choices and personal care items cannot be guaranteed due to occasional supply limits.
The food shelf is currently staffed by four part-time employees and approximately 150 volunteers. We offer both walk-in times and pre-scheduled appointments. Please feel free to call us at (763) 422-0046 if you have any questions. We will respond to messages as soon as we can.
Return visits are allowed every thirty days with a photo ID and a current piece of mail for all adults in your family.
