Welcome to the Hanover Area Food Shelf!

THANK YOU to everyone that donated for MN Foodshare Month!  We truly appreciate your support!!


How does the Food Shelf work?

Families who use the Food Shelf can come in once a calendar month.   Our goal is to provide a three meal per day, four-day supply of food.  

We also invite all clients to come on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the end of the day (from 1:30pm – 1:50pm) to pick up additional produce and bakery in addition to normal visits.

After signing in (clients must arrive 1/2 hour prior to closing to be checked 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.
