Our Department of Indian Work has grown significantly in recent months, expanding services for the Twin Cities American Indian community. With demand for our culturally specific food shelf up 150% over the past year and a half and DIW’s designation as a Covid Community Connector, our current space is no longer adequate for the level of service we are providing.
We’re happy to report that in early November DIW will be up and running at 3080 Centerville Road in Little Canada (near the intersection of 35E and 694), a fantastic new location that has twice as much space and significantly better parking. DIW will continue to deliver food in its “Indigievan” to elders and others who are unable to get to the new location.
“It was vital that we find a new location that meets the needs of our American Indian community,” says DIW program director Kelly Miller. “We’re so pleased to have found this spacious and welcoming location.”
