The City of Roseville has teamed up with The Sheridan Story to provide free, nutritious food to families in the community to ensure that area youth have food during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
The Sheridan Story has provided the city with 330 five-pound food bags. Each food bag contains approximately four meals and is packaged and ready to go. This initial delivery comprises more than 1,260 meals and The Sheridan Story will make sure supplies are replenished to meet the community’s needs in the coming weeks.
The food is available to any Roseville resident or family that may be struggling with food insecurity. Food may be picked up 24 hours a day, seven days a week, beginning Friday, April 17 from the vestibule at the Roseville Fire Station.
Access to the Fire Station is available from the parking lot at Roseville City Hall, 2660 Civic Center Drive, near the corner of County Road C and Lexington Avenue.
The City of Roseville requests that residents practice social distancing when picking up food.
ABOUT THE SHERIDAN STORYOver 200,000 children in Minnesota live in food insecurity – they don’t always know if they’ll have food for their next meal. In order to fight this devastating reality, The Sheridan Story focuses on the food gaps, the times throughout the year when children aren’t able to receive free and reduced meal programs at school. In the last six years, The Sheridan Story has grown from serving one school with a weekend food program to implementing multiple food gap programs serving over 10,000 children across 300 locations.
