During the month of March, we participate in March Food Share. This is an opportunity for us to get proportionate donations from Second Harvest. Please consider partnering with us through financial and food donations. All support is greatly appreciated. This is the food shelf’s only fundraiser for the year.
The Morrison County Food Shelf is a ministry of God's people for God's people. In response to Christ's command to "love our neighbor," the Food Shelf exists to provide emergency and supplemental food to people who lack sufficient resources to feed themselves. The Food Shelf also provides referral and educational information to its clients and patrons. We serve clients from all areas of Morrison County.
We are a client choice food shelf, which means clients are given a shopping list according to family size and they are able to shop and pick the foods that they would like for their family. Clients are able to come to the food shelf monthly, and receive an approximately 5-7-day supply of food. We have also recently started delivering to food to those who are unable to make it to the food shelf in person.
In 2021, we served 3,184 families and distributed 223,371 pounds of food. With the help of approximately 50 volunteers, we continue to find success in feeding the residents of Morrison County.
