The Kandiyohi County Food Shelf has been helping Kandiyohi County residents since 1982.  We are serving an average of 650 households a month with a food order and an additional 100 individuals daily for produce. 

Most households live paycheck to paycheck and just one bad event such as getting laid off, a health issue or a death in the family and they are seeking our help. 

Mission Statement
Responding collectively using community resources to relieve the suffering of poverty by providing food assistance.
