Neighborhood House operates two food shelves - one in the Wellstone Center on Saint Paul's West Side, and the second in Sibley Manor in Highland Park. Both locations provide food to those seeking assistance, and connect participants to critical community resources that help them move "from survive to thrive."

Individuals and families who visit either food shelf can be connected with a case worker, who helps them access Neighborhood House's comprehensive network of resources.

Neighborhood House serves primarily immigrant, refugee and low-income individuals, and the food shelves are stocked with healthy and culturally appropriate foods.
