CEAP accepts donations of food, hygiene, and other goods to help our neighbors.

Give In Kind

In-Kind Donations

CEAP is accepting donations of food, hygiene products, and more!

What we need: CEAP is in need of everyday non-perishable food and household items. Think of your favorite meal ingredients, the spices you cook with all the time, and the things you need to keep your home clean and comfortable. If you have questions about what we can accept, please reach out to us at 763-450-3664.


Things CEAP cannot use: CEAP cannot accept frozen or refrigerated foods due to food safety concerns. We cannot accept expired (past their sell-by or best-by date) or opened food items. As of 08/2020, we cannot accept clothing, bedding or household items as our Thrift Store is closed. 


You can make your donation during CEAP's open hours, which are Monday-Friday 8am to 4:30pm. Please drive your vehicle up to our food shelf drive-through and park. A volunteer will come out shortly to collect your donation! It's always a good idea to call us (at 763-450-3664) before you drop off so you don't catch us in the middle of a busy distribution time or an all-staff meeting.

Thinking about how to make an even bigger impact? You can host a drive in your neighborhood, workplace, place of worship, or another group!
