Joyce Uptown Foodshelf is a no questions asked food shelf in the heart of Uptown Minneapolis since 1969. On an average month, Joyce serves nearly 500 families with 45,000 lbs of food. 2020 was a record year for both number of food shelf visits and for poundage of food going to people's homes. 2021 has seen an increase over 2020, with nearly 30% more food, and 40% more visits. The majority of our shoppers are immigrants and people of color, and all have been impacted both by the pandemic, but also from loss of food resources in our community from unrest and business closures. Joyce stands firm in that we will continue to serve all who need food, regardless of income or geographic location. If you need food Joyce Uptown Foodshelf is there for you.
Please join us in ensuring that in 2022 we are able to rise to the challenges and serve the community with great nutritious food, a welcoming environment, and a strong community. The first $9000 in donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the Joyce Board of Directors and Lake Harriet UMC. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
