Raise money for ACBC Food Shelf

OUR MISSION

To provide emergency food and clothing to Anoka County residents in need while maintaining the dignity of those we serve. 

OUR HISTORY

ACBC Food Shelf was founded in 1971 by four women who wanted to help with the need for food and clothing in their community.  They founded the ACBC Food Shelf in one of their basements and packed out bags of food to distribute to community members.  After a few years, the ACBC Food Shelf moved to the old Milk Factory and served prepackaged boxes of food out of the tiny space.  After needing more space to expand the organization, ACBC Food Shelf moved to its current location on 9th Ave N.  Through a few capital campaign expansions, the building has been renovated to include a large warehouse space, walk-in freezer and cooler and donation sorting room in addition to the main store and clothing closet.  

Currently, the ACBC Food Shelf offers shopping using a client choice model and allows participants to walk through the store and choose their groceries no different than a grocery store.  As of 2019, the food shelf is also became SuperShelf certified which included partnering with the University of Minnesota Extension Program to transform the physical food shelf space and encourage healthier eating.
