Support our mission and your neighbors by organizing a food and fund drive.

Team up with your colleagues, co-workers,
school, place of worship, family, friends, book club —
the possibilities are endless.

Your food donations will go directly to CAPI’s food shelf to support those in need. Donations from your drive can be dropped off from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday at our location in Brooklyn Center. There is no need to make an appointment. Simply park in front of the food shelf and a staff member or volunteer will greet you at the door to collect items right from your vehicle.
Monetary donations can be made online or checks can be mailed or dropped off to our Brooklyn Center location with the name of your organization or food/fund drive sponsor in the memo.

Please check the expiration dates on the items being dropped off.

The CAPI food shelf will not distribute items 6 months past the expiration date.

Contact Monique Hernandez at or call 612.767.7815. Once your drive starts, tag CAPI on Facebook and Instagram so we can help promote your efforts! Our downloadable Media Kit is concentrated on the March Campaign. It is a useful tool that has a flyer, an email template to send to your networks, and commonly requested foods that are helpful for our community members. The campaign runs February 27th through April 6th. We would love to have you partner with us!
