>Cambridge Surplus Food Distribution
Cambridge Surplus Food Distribution will distribute food at the Isanti County Fairgrounds in Cambridge from 2:30 to 5 p.m. (or until food runs out). You can enter the fairgrounds before 1 p.m. rather than park along the streets or nearby parking lots; however, those entering after 1 p.m. will receive their food first. The policy has been adjusted a little because it is dangerous to park on the street and the police has told us to get the cars off the streets. Remember to bring your picture ID and one current utility bill if you are new or have not registered in the last two months. Groceries for up to two families per vehicle, which will be loaded in your trunk or the hatch back of your vehicles only.
