Ways to Apply

At this time, we are only able to accept new HIV/AIDS clients on to service. We are unable to accept applications for people living with cancer, MS, ALS, ESRD, CHF & COPD. This is due to funding and capacity challenges; it is NOT a permanent change. As soon as we can start taking new applicants for all diagnoses again, we will communicate that widely and put the application links back up here on our website. In the interim, if you are looking for food resources for you or a patient/client, please check out our Client Resource Guide or visit Hunger Solutions. If you have any questions, please call our Client Services team at 612-767-7333. Thank you.


What Happens Next?

After we receive your completed application form, we will assess your eligibility and a member of our staff will contact you to set up menu and delivery details. If you are not eligible for services, our staff will assist you in finding other resources.

Questions? If you have any questions about the application process, please contact one of our Client Services associates at 612-767-7333.
