Your CES Impact

Helping our neighbors in their time of need, from hunger to hope.

CES is on the frontlines of building a stronger community, providing hope, and sharing compassion with our neighbors. We do this through the distribution of healthy and culturally specific foods, financial assistance, screening and referral to additional services, and spiritual enrichment. 

  • Distributing over 600,000 lbs of food annually to neighbors in Minneapolis
  • Annually serving over 115,000 individuals
  • Delivering 80,667 meals to homebound seniors
  • Providing $28,153 of financial assistance to 959 households
