Ralph Reeder Food Shelf

Incarnation partners with the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf, which serves residents in the Mounds View School District. Volunteers sort food and stock shelves at the New Brighton facility. People can donate money or food for the food shelf at any time. To donate food and other household supplies, simply place them in the food shelf bin which is located in the Atrium (near the nursery).

Tons of Love

Tons of Love is an annual July campaign when the people of Incarnation and the surrounding community are invited to donate several tons of food for the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf, one of Incarnation’s ministry partners. Summer is a challenging time for clients who use food shelves, since kids are not in school and donations are typically lighter. In 2017, those who participated in Tons of Love donated 10,958 lbs of food and household items as well as $10,568 which was AMAZING! We are so grateful for your generosity. Your continued donations and prayers for the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf and the people they serve are always appreciated!
