STEP: St. Louis Park Emergency Program

STEP responds to our neighbors in need by providing access to vital services that foster stability.

We are the St. Louis Park community food shelf and social service agency. We directly provide food and clothing to residents in need, as well as advocacy, referrals, and build a collaborative relationship. Since 1975, STEP volunteers and professional staff have been empowering lives and restoring hope.

Our vision is to be the trusted resource for connecting community members with resources to fulfill their basic needs.
