In an effort to support our community while still taking the CDC recommendation of social distancing, the Food Shelf will continue to be open normal hours, however, we are temporarily changing the way food will be distributed. 

ALL distribution is completely contact free!!

With the closing of St. Paul's Lutheran church building, donations will only be accepted during Food Shelf hours at the Food Shelf door. We will have a cart there to drop items off!!
Thank you in advance for your support as we navigate though this time!
Families who use the Food Shelf can come in once a calendar month for a three meal per day, four day supply of food.

At the time of check-in, we ask for two items with a current address listed (no junk mail please).  This is done to keep families in the right geographic areas and using the right food shelf.

The Hanover Food Shelf serves:

  • Hanover
  • Rural Buffalo
  • St. Michael
  • Albertville
  • Part of Loretto
  • Part of Corcoran

After signing in, families then fill out a grocery list which in turn our volunteers “shop” from shelves and pack in boxes and bags. All items that are distributed must be weighed.

Thanks to many generous donors, not only do we have dry goods, but dairy items, bakery goods and meat.

We are also fortunate to provide personal items such as shampoo, toothpaste and laundry detergent.
