Open Your Heart recently provided Neighborhood House with funding for a refrigerator and freezer for their expanded and relocated Francis Basket Food Market, which is moving from the Sibley Manor Apartments complex to a much larger space at 1080 Montreal Avenue.

When families and individuals in St. Paul want to make a change in their lives, Neighborhood House is there to help. They are a multi-service agency, providing wrap-around services for people when they need it most. They help people with basic needs, education, multiple youth programs, and health and well-being. All of their programs are offered for free to participants.

Neighborhood House distributed 69,980 pounds of food to 595 participants at the Francis Basket location in Fiscal Year 2023 and expects the participant number to rise dramatically in the larger space for the new fiscal year they’ve just begun. The new refrigerator and freezer will improve their food program’s ability to provide a broad range of fresh and healthy food items to low-income people of color.

Thank you, Neighborhood House, for everything you do!
