• 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 for now; pull up, and get a box of food, plus meat and bakery products. 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 1:30-2:30 p.m. every Thursday afternoon until supplies run out. This can change so check the B&B Facebook page for weekly updates.
