Since 1908, Merrick Community Services has worked to improve the lives of the residents of East St. Paul and Maplewood by empowering individuals, strengthening families, and promoting their independence. Since 2011, Woodland has been the permanent home of Merrick’s Food Shelf serving individuals and families. We are honored to partner with Merrick in using our resources to help eliminate the long-term causes of hunger.
Merrick’s food shelf on our campus is currently not operating. With Merrick having to condense their staff to their other location due to the influx of volunteers and families in need, we put our heads together and offered to pay for extra deliveries and have some of our staff run the food shelf here on their behalf. Because of this, Merrick has been able to increase their distribution by 50 percent! You can learn more here (March 30) and here (May 7).
