Next Free Food Distribution

We’re distributing free food boxes (with mixed produce, dairy, meat and cheese) throughout the summer. There are no eligibility restrictions (including income or state/city residency)—anyone who is in need of food assistance is welcome. You can pick up for your family, friends, and neighbors in need (limit 4 households). Distributions will be in a low-contact, safe, drive-through format.

Find information on the next free food distributions on September 16 here.

Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank provides food through a regional network of non-profit agency partners (food shelves, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs).
