Ramsey County Minnesota food banks.

Food pantries in Ramsey County and Saint Paul Minnesota offer free food, meals, and other aid to families across the county. Many of the leading centers and food banks are listed below. Funding is often limited, and they are only open certain hours. Call or stop by for information on the various resources they provide.

In addition to offering food to the needy, many of the pantries can either provide, or direct people to, other local Ramsey County resources. For example, a pantry can sometimes provide clothing or personal products. Many locations also run holiday programs, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving meals and gifts. Or learn about and get help applying for other federal government food assistance programs that can help Saint Paul families, such as food stamps or WIC.
