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:
- Rural Buffalo
- St. Michael
- 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.
