Each month, we will send out this newsletter to keep you informed about programs at CCEFS as well as other important programs and reminders.
Today's Harvest Update
We will soon be opening our second Today's Harvest market at our main CCEFS location.
This market allows people to shop inside and pick out meat, dairy, produce, and bakery 6 days a week. Today's Harvest will be opened in the front portion of our space while our Drive-Up service will continue from the back portion of the building.
We are in the final steps of getting our Today's Harvest Market ready for clients. On March 1st, we will be opening Today's Harvest at 8264 4th St N, Oakdale, MN.
Service Changes With the opening of Today's Harvest, program changes will be made.
Produce Fair CCEFS will no longer have Produce Fairs every 2nd and 4th Saturday. Instead, Today's Harvest will be opened from 10am-1pm every Saturday.
Wildcard Wednesday We will also be shifting our Wildcard Wednesday program. We will be offering the same great food that we provide through Wildcard Wednesday, but now this food will be available throughout the week and on Saturdays through our Today's Harvest market. Today's Harvest will be opened 12pm-6pm Monday-Friday.
Our final Wildcard Wednesday service will be February 23rd.

CCEFS is grateful for Guardian Angels Church and the accommodations they have allowed us during COVID-19. However, they ask that clients only use one lane of Cemetery Road to allow their parishioners to visit loved ones.
Please stay in one lane until after the roundabout. We will still have two lanes of Drive-Up service whenever possible.
