Finding a Food Shelf 
The Twin Cities is served by a network of agencies, which maintain emergency food shelves to assist people who temporarily are not able to meet their food needs. Generally, you must provide proof that you live in the agency's service area. Food Shelves can provide up to a week of free food. Check out Hunger Solutions for a food shelf in your area.
