Impact and Programs

Accomplishments Keystone supported 38,840 people with 2.3M pounds of emergency food in 2021 via our food shelves and mobile food programs. We held 21 drive-up community food distribution events in 2021 that offered low-barrier access to pre-packed emergency food for thousands of people, many who are accessing food supports for the first time. Keystone’s food shelf home delivery program for seniors grew by almost 300% during 2021, from 80 people served in January to 232 people in December. Keystone Resource Navigators provided 744 households with resource referrals and distributed $119,635 in financial assistance. A total of 171 youth participated in Keystone afterschool programs including Community Kids and the Teen Tutor program. Keystone also provided Youth Employment and Training Programs that served 98 youth through workforce readiness classes, paid work experiences, and training activities at Keystone’s Best Buy Teen Tech Center. Keystone also supported 2,123 St. Paul seniors in 2021 including 345 seniors who participated in Active Senior exercise and recreation programs in 2021. Keystone’s in-home senior services increased their reach in 2021 (484 served, including vaccine clinics, senior outreach and referrals, and care coordination). Keystone’s Meals on Wheels services also continued to increase in 2021, reaching 245 older adults. Finally, Keystone social workers provided case management for 1,041 older adults in 2021.
Current Goals Goal #1: 33,000 people will improve their nutrition, health and economic stability by accessing over 2.3M pounds of food and support services via the Keystone Basic Needs Program. Goal #2: 180 youth will participate in afterschool and youth employment programs designed to improve their academic, social and community engagement skills. Goal #3: 2,000 Saint Paul seniors will be connected to resources and activities in their community that support health, safety, and community living.
