PRISM is not located directly on a bus route. Visit Metro Transit to plan your trip.
Our Food Shelf ensures that children, seniors, and families do not go hungry. Each month more than 850 families visit our Food Shelf.
Our dignified, unique approach offers brief, one-on-one meetings with a case manager where participants discuss and problem-solve challenges, and get connected to additional community resources. Participants then “shop” independently in the Marketplace, choosing personal hygiene items and approximately one week of fresh and packaged groceries that fit their dietary needs and preferences. Items are provided at no cost.
No appointment is needed to visit the Food Shelf. Participants may visit our Food Shelf every 30 days. Participants and members of the community may visit our free shelf, which is stocked with overflow perishables when available, as often as needed.
Additional Food Programs
Farmer's Market: During the summer months PRISM serves as the SNAP Benefits Coordinator at the Golden Valley farmer's market, improving access to local, fresh food for low-income people.
Produce Distributions: PRISM facilitates free produce distributions during the summer and early fall months at an easily accessible location to increase access to healthy food. You do not need to be a PRISM participant to access this program. Our 2020 distributions dates will be posted early June 2020. Produce distributions take place at Elim Church, located at 3978 W Broadway Ave. in Robbinsdale.
For youth: On Thursday evenings (4:00 pm to 7:00 pm), we partner with the YMCA and open our Food Shelf doors to homeless youth ages 12 – 24.
