Fresh Produce Events

Fresh produce distribution events

Fresh produce distribution events are offered year-round. Our goal at these events is to distribute ample amounts of fresh produce to people and families in need.

Summer / Fall distributions*

(July – October) take place outside at five of our locations across St. Paul (The Wellstone Center, Francis Basket, John A Johnson Elementary, and Dayton’s Bluff Elementary).

Winter / Spring distributions*

(November – May) take place at Metro State University in St. Paul. During each event, we distribute approximately 4,000-7,000 pounds of food to approximately 100 families on average.

* Weather permitting – If there are thunderstorms, excessive heat warnings, or winter weather warnings we may cancel the event and / or events.
