Due to COVID-19, we are instituting a temporary service model intended to reduce close contact between the clients and between clients and volunteers. If clients need help and live in Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park or Grey Cloud Island, they can call FIN at (651)458-0730 on Monday between 12:00- 3:00 or Tuesday morning after 7:30 am to make an appointment, just as they usually do. Our hours will stay the same, but clients will pick up a pre-packed order in the parking lot. If someone has never been to Friends in Need and lives in our service area, they should mention this when they call, and we will be happy to help. If clients in our service area don't have transportation, they should call the food shelf to discuss options. For this social distancing to work, we need everyone to come within 15 minutes of their appointment time if possible. During this difficult time, MN has changed the income qualifications to 300% or less of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, so many more people qualify. Thanks for helping us meet the needs of our community, while trying to keep everyone as safe as possible.
