Drive-Thru and get your Holiday Treats!

Each year during the holiday season, our bakers are hard at work making cookies, macarooons, and other sweets. This has been a challenging year for all of us, so we are especially thrilled to once again offer our signature sweets, which includes pints of cookie dough, sleeves of chocolate-dipped macaroons, and cookie-decorating kits — all of which will make perfect holiday gifts for loved ones. Best of all, proceeds directly support healthy, healing meals for our clients!

NOTE NEW SAFETY MEASURES: In an abundance of caution and to ensure the safety of our clients, staff, and volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will distribute our made-from-scratch treats in a DRIVE-THRU format! Our building and parking lot at 2500 Bloomington Avenue will be transformed into a beautiful, festive winter wonderful — our very own North Pole tucked away in South Minneapolis!

If possible, please pre-order your treats from our online marketplace! There you will have the option to select your pickup date. No stress or hassle, simply drive over to our building and enjoy the decorations.

We are very thankful to our friends at Warners’ Stellian for sponsoring our Holiday Treats Drive-Thru and helping us spread holiday cheer to our supporters and clients this holiday season.
