The Midway Food & Empowerment Project

 

WELCOME TO THE MIDWAY PROJECT. WE’RE GLAD YOU’RE HERE.

The Midway Food & Empowerment Project (Midway Project) is a resident-led initiative established in partnership with HMC in May 2020 to meet immediate needs, and the project continues to work with community partners and neighbors to build a sustainable source of community support. During our near-weekly distributions at Hancock Recreation Center since June 2020, we have built a community of care that supports an average of 50 families each week and constructed a web of connectivity between the City of St. Paul, non-profit organizations, local organizers and businesses, and individual neighbors.

DISTRIBUTIONS

  • Every Wednesday in July from 12 pm-2 pm

  • Location: Hancock Rec Center, 1610 Hubbard Ave, St. Paul, MN 55104
