The Lakes Area Food Shelf is committed to making sure that no one has to go hungry. The food shelf is considered a “choice food shelf” which means that it is set up like a grocery store and you will choose your own food, personal care items, and household goods from the selections available. We will also do curbside service and you may inquire about home delivery.

As a shopper, you agree to accepting the food "as is".  Absolutely no sale of food is allowed.  Please remember to bring reusable bags (choice shopping).
