How it Works

Who can use the market?

The market is open to anyone who can use these fresh and frozen items while they are still fresh.

So much food is wasted in our country - we want to make this great food available to all. It's really that simple!

How often can I come to get food?

Today's Harvest is designed to provide a 1-2 day supply of food during each visit. You are welcome to shop as often as your household needs to keep your fridge stocked with fresh food!

What will you ask me? Do I need to bring anything?

No ID or personal info is needed, and you do not need to bring anything! We'll just ask for your zip code, and the number of adults, children, and seniors in your household.

By providing your phone number as an ID for return visits, you can skip those questions for future fast check out. We will never use the number to contact you without your permission.

Do I need to wear a face mask while shopping? 

Yes as of 12/28, due to rising cases of COVID-19 in our community, we will now require that all visitors to Today's Harvest wear a mask while inside the market. We are making this change to help keep our shoppers, volunteers, and staff safe during this pandemic surge. If you are unable to wear a face covering, you can visit CCEFS for drive-up services on Mondays from 12-4, Wednesdays from 11-1:30, Thursdays from 3-6 or Fridays from 10am-1:30pm. CCEFS is located at 8264 4th Street North in Oakdale. 


Do I need to make an appointment?

No appointments needed - just stop by!

What is the best time to come?

You are welcome to come by whenever works best for you. We restock food throughout the day. The first hour or so that we are open tends to be the busiest time, so if you want to avoid waiting in line, we'd recommend coming in after 1pm if you're visiting on a weekday.
