This month I finally had the opportunity to visit Ruby’s Pantry. Ruby’s Pantry is a community outreach program based in Minnesota, where basically you pick up food shares for a $20 donation. There are no income or residency requirements. There are many locations here in Minnesota and Wisconsin, though there are currently only a couple in the metro area, including Bloomington, which is where I went to today.
The food is a variety of fresh, nonperishable and frozen food. Some is past expiration, some is not, but it should all be perfectly fine to consume.
