Ralph Reeder Food Shelf

Incarnation partners with the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf, a program of the Mounds View School District located in the Silver View Plaza Mall at 2544 Mounds View Blvd. (formerly County Highway 10) in Mounds View, MN 55112 (651-621-6280). Volunteers sort food, stock shelves, pick up rescue food at grocery stores, and greet/work with clients. People may donate money or food for the food shelf at any time. To donate food and other household supplies, simply place items in the food shelf bin which is located in the Atrium (near the nursery) any time the Incarnation building is open. To donate financially, write a check to Incarnation with “Ralph Reeder” in the memo or donate online.

  • Operation Christmas Joy collecting and distributing toys in December.
  • Statewide Minnesota FoodShare Month in March.
  • Incarnation’s Tons of Love Food Drive in July.

2018 Tons of Love Results

Incarnation, you heard the call that many of our neighbors are hungry. You fully embraced our mission – Filled by God’s grace, we feed the hungry in heart, body, mind and spirit – and overwhelmed our neighbors with Tons of Love last July by gathering 10,825 lbs. of food and household donations and $17,041 in monetary donations!! Thank you for your extraordinary generosity and for taking seriously the call, surpassing the goal of gathering more than five tons of food and supplies for Ralph Reeder.

While we celebrate the faithfulness of the community, we remember that we do this because there are people in our immediate neighborhoods who will still be relying on Ralph Reeder throughout the year. Continue to drop off donations any time the Incarnation building is open.
