Welcome to Free Community Meals Resources

For those most in need, finding places to eat is very important.  And yet, even the reliability of resources as well as the information about these resources is as important.  Every day we need to eat three or more times.  Many skip meals for various reasons, including accessibility.  

Especially, when coordinating other errands and appointments in ones day.

Help us maintain these listings by letting us know of what is incorrect or missing.

FREE COMMUNITY MEALS FORUM & TOPICS

Food Support Forum (message board)

CSR Minnesota Forums is a separate website where the community is invited to participate.  Anyone in the state of Minnesota can go to this website, create a profile, and participate in creating, commenting, and developing our resource listings. This particular feature needs to be complete reworked because the previous ownership of our message board sold it to someone new, and the transition completely wiped out all our site design and development.  Please watch for updates...

 

Food Support Forum

A forum is a collection of topics about a given subject.  Each resource subject will have it's own forum where members of a community can login and help participate in making any given resource listings the most relevant and complete possible.


Food Support Topics

A Topic is a collection of comments or content regarding given resource listings.  This is where the community will be encouraged to participate in discussions to help make sure our listings are complete and up to date.  As well as answering the question "Are these Resources serving us as needed?"
