We are a food shelf serving Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park, and Grey Cloud Island in South Washington County, MN. We served 13,000 people last year and we are seeing even higher numbers this year! Any support would be greatly appreciated. Checks made out to "Friends in Need Food Shelf" may be mailed to P.O. Box 6, Cottage Grove, MN 55016. We recently were chosen to receive the first Hunger Solutions Blue Ribbon Certification Award. We also are aligned with the 10 Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence and are a registered 501(c)(3).
