Partnering with you to create a healthier community

Your donation is an investment in the health and wellness of the North Minneapolis community. Community support of our general operating costs helps us work toward community healing from racism and injustice. Your support helps us make health happen! 

Support our March Fund & Food Drive

Each year, the NorthPoint Community Food Shelf dedicates the month of March to raise awareness about food access, to enhance our efforts to distribute healthy food and necessities, and to partner with local organizations to create a healthier community! We invite you to sponsor a March Fund & Food Drive with your employment group, faith community, block club or book club. 

We have a few recommendations to get you started:

  • Make a financial gift! Financial gifts are the most effective way to support the Food Shelf. Because we buy wholesale, we can stretch your dollar to buy perishable items like meat and dairy products.
  • Make an Amazon gift using our wish list!
  • Volunteer with us as an individual or with your group! If you’re interested in volunteering, please reach out to Jamiela Taylor, (612) 767-0324, jtaylor@npimn.orgor visit our Volunteer page.

You can also host a nonperishable food drive at your workplace, worship center, etc.! If you host a nonperishable food drive, please follow these guidelines:

  • Consider collecting one item -- such as only peanut butter.
  • If you collect miscellaneous dry goods, sort them prior to donating by packaging similar products together.
  • If you’d like a collection bin, you may pick one up from 1835 Penn Avenue North, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Please deliver. We can receive donations at 1835 Penn Avenue North, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We’d love to give you a tour!
  • Our team is onsite helping distribute food and supplies to the community. We appreciate the extra effort in helping get these donations to us!
