Updated July 6, 2020

YWCA Minneapolis is here for our neighbors in need. We have created a pop-up distribution hub at YWCA Midtown to ensure our neighbors have groceries, personal hygiene items and other supplies.

Pick Up Food and Supplies

Open to everyone! People can pick up food and supplies at YWCA Midtown (2121 East Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55407):

  • Wednesdays from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm for walk-up only. Lines start at the south side of the Minneapolis Sports Center.
  • Saturdays 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm for walk-up and drive-up. Please no parking in YWCA’s lot or in the Hennepin County lot on 22nd Ave.

Starting one hour before distribution, those who are in line (cars or walk-up), will receive a numbered ticket and a designated 30-minute window when they can come back and receive their items.


Help us organize food, take inventory and build care packages!
