Basic Needs: Food Support


Neighborhood House operates two food shelves - one in the Wellstone Center on Saint Paul’s West Side, and the second in Sibley Manor in Highland Park. Both locations provide food to those seeking assistance, and connect participants to critical community resources that help them move “from survive to thrive."

Individuals and families who visit either food shelf can be connected with a case worker, who helps them access Neighborhood House’s comprehensive network of resources.

Neighborhood House serves primarily immigrant, refugee and low-income individuals, and the food shelves are stocked with healthy and culturally appropriate foods.

Food Shelf Facts
  • The Wellstone Center Food Shelf distributes over 2,500 pounds of food daily to over 10,000 households annually.
  • Francis Basket Food Shelf is the only food shelf in Highland Park, and it addresses a critical need in the community. 1,500  individuals use Francis Basket each year.
  • The need for emergency resources is on the rise, and our food shelves saw demand increase nearly 25% between 2011-2012.
  • 50% of those served by both food shelves are children.
  • Together, the Neighborhood House food shelves distributed 652,663 pounds of food in 2012.
