May Food Drive

Registration deadline extended to Friday, May 19 10:00pm. Please sign up to donate!

Tangletown neighbors have donated over 3,000 pounds of food as part of our annual food drive for Joyce Uptown Foodshelf. Now in its fourth year, we hope to collect even more food and essentials for those in need. 

Please join the Tangletown Neighborhood Association in participating in our Food Drive.

  • On Sunday May 21, residents can place items for donation on their front steps before 10am. We will organize volunteers who will come pick up your items for donation. Register here to have your donation picked up. Registration is required so we can send a volunteer to your home for pick up. If you live in a nearby neighborhood, we should be able to accommodate a pick up within reason. Registration deadline May 19 at 10:00pm.
In 2021, we collected 192 bags of donations totaling 2,179.5 pounds of food!

In addition to food, the greatest needs are for the following items:

  • Diapers/Wipes
  • Toothbrushes/paste
  • Tampons/pads

Please no expired food or open items. 

If you prefer, you may make a financial contribution on the Joyce Uptown Foodshelf website: where you can also find a link to volunteer at the food shelf.

If you are experiencing food scarcity and need access to food at the Joyce Uptown Foodshelf, call 612-825-4431 to schedule an appointment.
