In response to the coronavirus, Mission Outpost at Prince of Peace will remain open for FOOD ONLY by DRIVE-THRU.

Welcome to Mission Outpost! The Prince of Peace community, in partnership with The Salvation Army, is called to connect with people in need in the south metro area. If you are experiencing a difficult time for any reason, Mission Outpost is a hub of hope and wholeness where you can receive food and support from caring individuals.

Mission Outpost Hours

Please remain in your vehicle. A number will be given to you when you enter our parking lot and you will be instructed where to wait. Pre-packaged bags of food will be loaded directly into your vehicle once the distribution begins. We will be limiting the number of families served during each distribution. Reminder: You are only allowed to receive food one time a month. There will be no clothing, household items, dental clinic, tax preparation, and no Thursday Farmer’s Market until further notice.

Mission Outpost staff will be on-site for food only but will be returning calls and emails during this time. Thank you for your patience.

  • Monday & Wednesday: 5:00-7:00 pm
  • Tuesday & Thursday: Noon-2:00 pm

MISSION OUTPOST WILL BE CLOSED JULY 6 – 10 FOR STAFF SABBATH

Job Search Resources

While our MOVE ministry has been temporarily suspended during our campus closure, we continue to partner with Dakota County and the State of Minnesota to provide employment resources, especially in this difficult economic time.

MOVE Ministry

MOVE strives to understand and support individuals and families as they progress from where they are to where they want to be.

Our MOVE team can assist with applications for Employment and Economic Assistance (E&EA), SNAP benefits, MNsure, Energy Assistance, job search and resume building, food and nutritional information and many other resources within our community. For more information, please contact us at move@popmn.org or 952-898-9394.

Volunteer

We are asking that all volunteers register for each shift in advance. A sign-up was sent via email to those on our email distribution list. We ask that you don’t arrive until the beginning of your shift. Thank you for your continued support and faithful hearts! If our sign-up is full or you are unable to volunteer, you can continue to support us through prayer!

Hygiene Kits: Mission Outpost is starting to provide hygiene kits to families coming to our drive thru food distribution and you can help. To create and donate a hygiene kit, put 2 toothbrushes, a tube of toothpaste, a bar of soap and shampoo in a gallon zip top bag. All items should be new and full-size. Hygiene kits can be dropped off at any time in the Mission Outpost tent entrance at the west end of the Christian Life Center building. Please do not drop off any donations other than Hygiene Kits. We are still unable to accept all other donations, including food, at this time. Thank you for your generosity!

Financial Donations: We currently do not have the resources to accept and sort any donations beyond hygiene kits, not even food. Effective immediately, if you’d like to support Mission Outpost, the best thing you can do is provide a financial gift to support Prince of Peace mission and ministry. We are able to purchase food in bulk and at significantly reduced prices. The food we purchase comes directly from the warehouse, with minimal hands touching it – so less chance of contamination. You can give online here. Thank you for your understanding.
