Places to Bring Unwanted Items
SNG’s Environment Committee created this list of places folks can take unwanted items, in addition to donating to thrift stores such as Savers, Goodwill, and Salvation Army. We hope this list reduces what’s burned at the Hennepin Energy Recovery Center (HERC), our solid waste to energy facility.

Free and Affordable Food Resources
There are many places to get local, affordable or free emergency food in Minneapolis this winter. Find a map and hours of food shelves and food distribution pop-ups for emergency food in Minneapolis.

Minnesota Black community COVID-19 hotline now available

A fully staffed hotline to support Minnesota’s African American community through the pandemic is now available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Callers can get important information about virus testing sites, food security, physical and mental health, employment, housing, child care, legal rights and other COVID-19 related challenges. The hotline will also help callers looking for information and resources such as reusable cloth masks, hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies. 

As part of this new partnership the African American Leadership Forum and the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center will communicate with the Minnesota Department of Health and other partners to ensure that all other needs and resource gaps in the Black community stemming from the pandemic are addressed. Competent, compassionate staff are on the line to answer your questions and connect you with the right services. Call the hotline at 612-254-1145 with questions about COVID-19.
