Food Shelves

Our network of five food shelves provides immediate food and resources to individuals and families to bridge them through difficult times. We engage our food shelf customers to provide workable solutions that will stabilize them and offer hope for the future. We have food shelves in Burnsville, Rosemount, Lakeville, Apple Valley, and Farmington. These five shelves serve individuals from the surrounding communities as well as the greater south metro. All are welcome to receive food support services from 360 Communities.

Donations are accepted at all of our food shelf locations. For a list of our most needed items or to learn how to run your own food drive, click the button on the right. We are also always in need of volunteers to help with daily operations at each location.

Healthy Choice Shopping Models

360 Communities is purposeful about listening to the people who need our services and responding directly to their feedback. We surveyed our food shelf customers and found that they wanted more healthy food options and an experience that surrounds them with friends and support.

The 360 Communities food shelf network has evolved to offer a store-like shopping experience with nutritious options for our neighbors. All five 360 Communities network food shelves feature healthy choice shopping, where clients can choose their groceries and where making the nutritious food choice is easy. Two of our food pantries are certified SuperShelf locations.

SuperShelf is a statewide collaborative that works with food shelves to:

  • Create a food shelf environment that is client-centered, promoting and respecting individual choice
  • Increase access to a variety of healthy, culturally appropriate food
  • Apply behavioral economic principles promote healthy food choices
  • Create an appealing environment by transforming the physical space
  • Meet specific SuperShelf standards, methods, and values
  • Make the healthiest choice the easiest choice for all
