Ramsey County COVID-19 Food Security and Basic Needs Distribution

Ramsey County would like your help assessing household food and basic needs within our community, including food accessibility and availability during the COVID-19 pandemic response.

Ramsey County is seeking immediate input for the development of a food and basic needs supply and distribution system that is:

  • Prepared to meet the needs for up to 300,000 people that could potentially lose regular access to meals and basic needs.
  • Informed by solutions, through consultation and collaboration with community partners and residents, on how we address loss of food security and access to basic needs in the most vulnerable communities.
  • Designed in collaboration with community partners and residents, so that resources are available to those in need throughout Ramsey County.


We appreciate your time and input on the following survey. Please respond by the priority deadline on  Friday, April 3 at 11:59 p.m. CST. 
 

Thank you.
