Food shelves adapt, fill gaps
December 11, 2020
Due to higher numbers of Covid-19 cases and the tight quarters at the National Guard Armory in Cloquet, Ruby's Pantry will not distribute this month in Cloquet. Ruby's Pantry serves about 200 people on the fourth Wednesday of each month in Cloquet. It hopes to have a better distribution location by January.
The Second Harvest Mobile Food Pantry comes to the Our Savior's Lutheran Church parking lot in Cloquet to distribute food 10:30-11:30 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month. Drive up, and volunteers will load food into vehicles.
The Salvation Army food shelf is open every Tuesday 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-2:30 p.m. It's also a drive-thru service. Call 651-746-3407 to find out more about the different Salvation Army programs to help people in need.
B&B Market and the Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency have been distributing boxes containing produce, dairy, meat and milk starting between 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. every Thursday afternoon until supplies run out. Check the B&B Facebook page for details each week.
