Located at 3041 Fremont Avenue South in Uptown, Joyce Uptown Food Shelf has been serving hungry residents of southwest Minneapolis for over 40 years.

The mission is to distribute food to those in need with respect and dignity as an expression of the love of God. They provide clients with a three-day supply of food once a month and help approximately 1,400 people each month, many of them families and elderly neighbors.

Each year Joyce Uptown Food Shelf participates in the Greek Festival by hosting an information and collection booth, receiving food and monetary donations from Festival attendees.
