No Barriers Youth Food Shelf

CEAP's No Barriers Youth Food Shelf welcomes children ages 12 to 21, and comes at a time when homelessess is at it's highest. Over 450 children in our community hop from couch to couch every night, relying on the generosity of friends and extended family for food and shelter.

The No Barriers Youth Food Shelf is a program of CEAP. It is staffed by YMCA Street Works, and is now located at Cross of Glory Lutheran Church. This new partnership with Cross of Glory affords youth not only a unique, no-questions-asked place to get food, but a safe place to get additional resources and socialize.

The No Barriers Youth Food Shelf is located at:
Cross of Glory Lutheran Church
5929 Brooklyn Boulevard
Brooklyn Center, MN 55429


Open Wednesdays & Fridays from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
