We serve Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park, and Grey Cloud Island, MN
We are open to the public on Tuesdays only. We would need the produce on either Monday or early Tuesday morning in order for it to be fresh enough to give out.
Please call (651)458-0730 to let us know you are coming, especially on Monday as we need to make sure someone is there to receive the produce.
Our mailing address is Friends in Need, P.O. Box 6, Cottage Grove, MN 55016.

Want an email when this food pantry updates their hours or other information?
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
