ACBC Food Shelf

A nonprofit organization

Anoka County Brotherhood Council (ACBC) has been a trusted community partner since 1971. Our mission is, "to provide emergency food, clothing, and resources to Anoka County residents in need while maintaining the dignity of those we serve."  

ACBC averages 1400+ families per month (5500+ individuals), and this number continues to grow daily. We work hard to provide our participants with not only the support they need, but an environment welcoming and inclusive of all.

For every dollar donated we can purchase $9.33 in food.
