The people of Minnesota have a long-standing history of concern and generosity when it comes to helping those who are hungry and in need. NorthPoint's Emergency Food Shelf embodies that concern in North Minneapolis. NorthPoint's Emergency Food Shelf has steadily grown over the years as the need to feed the hungry has increased.
The food distributed by our food shelf comes from donations of food and/or cash to purchase food. Our support comes from the State of Minnesota, various churches, businesses, organizations and individuals that share a common concern: Hunger.
