Client Info

All are welcome here.

Supporting our community is the reason Valley Outreach is here.

A temporary service model is currently in effect.

We are offering drive-up service for food Monday / Wednesday / Friday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and Tuesday / Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. No appointment necessary.

Please do not arrive early and follow directions to ensure we are moving people quickly through the line and maintaining a safe traffic situation.

Be assured we are managing our food inventory, so we have enough food for everyone who comes to us for drive-up service.

We will not be open for Bonus Friday and our building will be closed to the public, including StyleXchange.

Please call 651-430-2739 if you need help with resource assistance, financial assistance or other service-related needs. We will be routing calls via an automated system and you may not get a person on the line right away. We will contact you as soon as possible. We also have a list of helpful partner resources that you may find useful.

Valley Outreach welcomes anyone who comes to us in need of food, clothing and support navigating resources. We are happy to answer questions and help however we can. Please call if you have any questions or simply are not sure if you are eligible for Valley Outreach services, 651-430-2739.

What to Expect During Your Visit

We have a very simple process to check-in and access our programs.

When you arrive

  • Enter through door 1911 during our walk-in hours.
  • Check in at our welcome desk. You’ll be greeted by a team member and asked some basic information (e.g., your name, which program you’re here for today, etc.) and may fill out some forms.
    • If it’s your first visit, you’ll meet briefly with a staff member to register, learn about available services and other community resources. It’s a great time to ask questions and learn more about Valley Outreach.
  • After check-in, you’ll learn about next steps to shop for food, select clothing items or meet with a staff member to discuss additional resources and supports.
  • That’s it. If you come in need of food, you’ll leave with food the same day.

What if I have children with me?

  • Children are welcome; a child-friendly section of our waiting room is available. Parents are always expected to keep their children with them.

Have additional questions? We’re happy to answer any questions you may have, please contact us directly at 651-430-2739. 

What’s TEFAP?

Because some of the food we receive comes from The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) though the USDA, one of our forms includes the TEFAP income eligibility guidelines. The weekly income guidelines are 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines for various family sizes. We have this paperwork to be compliant with this program. This is not a barrier to service at Valley Outreach.

The following charts show the maximum weekly income and maximum annual income levels by household size in compliance with TEFAP.
