Anxiety Support Group

NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness) sponsors free support groups for persons with anxiety disorders. The groups help individuals develop better coping skills and find strength through sharing their experiences. An open door anxiety and panic support group meets on the East Side of St. Paul from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on the first and third Thursday of the month, at Woodland Hills Church, 1740 Van Dyke Street. For information, call NAMI at 651-645-2948.

Free, fresh produce distribution

This harvest season, Neighborhood House is hosting 20 free produce distribution events in four St. Paul neighborhoods. Between June and October up to 280,000 pounds of fresh fruits, vegetables and other vital food will be shared with anyone in the community needing food support. Each event is set-up like a free, open-air farmers market and provides an opportunity to bring healthy food into the community. For those needing food, numbers are distributed 30 minutes before each distribution (one number per household). Everyone with a number will get food. Distributions last about an hour and a half or until food is gone. Those receiving food must be a St. Paul resident or Neighborhood House participant. Please bring an ID and bring bags and carts as the produce can be heavy.
