The City of Roseville and The Sheridan Story are adding a temporary food distribution site for anyone in need. Food bags will be available on Friday, May 8 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Unity Park, 1716 Marion Street.
Anyone who may be struggling with food insecurity is encouraged to pick up a bag of food.
The Sheridan Story will provide 330 food bags. Each food bag contains approximately four meals and is packaged and ready to go. Food bags will be tailored to a variety of dietary preferences including East African, Latino and Southeast Asian preferences. Ready-to-eat bags that require little or no preparation will also be available.
The Sheridan Story and the City of Roseville also distribute food bags at the Roseville Fire Station. Food may be picked up 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from the vestibule at the Fire Station, located at 2701 Lexington Ave. Please use the entrance next to the Roseville City Hall parking lot.
About The Sheridan Story
Over 200,000 children in Minnesota live in food insecurity – they don’t always know if they’ll have food for their next meal. In order to fight this devastating reality, The Sheridan Story focuses on the food gaps, the times throughout the year when children aren’t able to receive free and reduced meal programs at school. In the last six years, The Sheridan Story has grown from serving one school with a weekend food program to implementing multiple food gap programs serving over 10,000 children across 300 locations.
