The mission of the Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf is to provide nutritional assistance to individuals and families in need living within the Mahtomedi Community. We achieve our mission by securing wholesome food and offering compassionate and courteous service. We conscientiously manage our resources through efficient business practices.

The Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf serves people in the city of Mahtomedi and all surrounding communities including all families of children attending Mahtomedi area schools.

Tree of Light and Remembrance

HUNGER is closer than you think…

Since 1974, the Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf continues to serve our community and all surrounding communities by providing pantry staples, fresh foods, and toiletry items to those experiencing hunger. The needs of families are greater than ever as they face higher food prices and cost of living increases. In addition, the Weekend Backpack Program supports students who attend the Mahtomedi Area Schools and now provides meal bags which include two breakfast and fruit items, two meal items and one snack item that are sent home every weekend during the school year. The Food Shelf fully funds and prepares 100 meal bags each week for the Weekend Backpack Program

Please join us for the Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday December 2nd at
6:30 pm, Veteran’s Memorial Park.
