Our mission is to provide supplemental food assistance to families with food insecurities in the Breezy Point, Ideal Corners, Jenkins, Lake Shore, Nisswa, and Pequot Lakes communities of the Brainerd Lakes area of Minnesota.
Lakes Area Food Shelf exists because of the donations of time, talents, food and money by businesses, churches, non-profits, and individuals.
We were established in 1980 by Lutheran Church of the Cross in Nisswa and became Lakes Area Food Shelf in 1991. Our Board of Directors is made up of representatives from local churches. Today we serve over 200 households annually. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
