The food shelf is working a bit differently now due to COVID-19. Our staff and volunteers remain committed to serving our friends and neighbors with food in the safest and most respectable way imaginable. Here is how we adjusted our food distribution to people due to the unprecedented challenges brought on by COVID-19.
- Households receive a prepacked box of nonperishable food plus basics like dairy, meat, produce and bread instead of selecting their own food.
- We suspended the use of food shelf cards so there is no need for anyone to come into the office and register, especially those recently unemployed.
- Our volunteer places the food in the cart while the person waits in a designated area in the food shelf.
- We are offering curbside pickup and grocery deliveries for those at most risk. We ask that you call Jen at 507.452.5591 to determine the best way we can help you get food.

We are resuming afternoon hours on Thursdays and Fridays starting in July 2020.
