FAQ about Today's Harvest 
We have officially opened our second Today's Harvest location at 8264 4th St N, Oakdale, MN. Here are a few frequently asked questions about how Today's Harvest works. 
How often can I come?
You can use Today's Harvest once a day.

When is the best time to visit Today's Harvest?
The best time to visit Today's Harvest is in the later afternoon. We continuously restock throughout the day so there is always food available. 

Can I use both Today's Harvest and Drive-Up?
Yes! You are welcome to use both programs. You can use our Drive-Up Service once a week and Today’s Harvest Market once a day.
What is the difference between Today's Harvest and Drive-Up?
Drive-Up is designed to be a weekly amount of groceries. Think of it as a way to stock your shelfs. You will receive produce, deli, dairy, meat, bakery, nonperishables and cleaning/hygiene. You will also be able to pick out choice items, which are culturally specific, as well as diapers, pet food, and pads/tampons.

Today’s Harvest is intended to be a 1-2 day shop. Most of the food at Today’s Harvest is rescued from local grocery stores and has a shorter shelf life. You will be able to shop for produce, deli, dairy, meat, and bakery.

What information do I need to provide? 
At Today’s Harvest you will need to provide the size of your household and your zip code. You can optionally provide your phone number to make your next visit easier. We will not provide your personal information to other parties.

If you have other questions, check out our FAQ on our website or contact us.

Need a delivery?

In partnership with Valley Outreach and White Bear Food Shelf, there is a new link to sign up for deliveries.
If you are not able to come to our food shelf due to health concerns, weather, or transportation barriers, you can request a delivery of food. This program is designed to replace coming to our Drive-Up markets, so you can request food each week.
