** While we do our best to estimate how many families and individuals will be at each distribution, we recommend that if it is possible that you come as early as possible. If you are unable to come during our open hours you have two options:

  • Have a friend, family member or service provider pick up food and make choices on your behalf. This person is called a “proxy”.
  • Contact us prior to the distribution and we will have a volunteer pack and set aside a box for you that you will pick up at a mutually agreed upon time.

Volunteers are needed between 8:30 am and 1:30 pm.

Food will be distributed to persons in need at no charge regardless of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regards to public assistance, membership or activity in a local commission, disability, sexual orientation, age or other criteria unrelated to need.

For additional information or to volunteer, please contact Manager Amy Beckius-Johnson at   218-681-4708 and leave a message, or by email at foodshelftrf@gmail.com

The Thief River Falls Food Shelf is a non-profit organization that serves the Pennington County, Minnesota community as an emergency food pantry. While we have a long history of providing this important service, we are in a transition period and finalizing the details for a permanent location. Please visit this site in the future as we share news about our new location, hours and volunteer opportunities.
