Rock County Emergency Food Shelf

 
 
The Mission
        
In view of the increased need for emergency food supplies in the Rock County area, an emergency food shelf has been established.  Utilizing and bringing together the county resources, the RCEFS provides food assistance to individuals and  families.
 

Nonperishable Food

 

Nonperishable foods are “shelf-stable” items that do not spoil or decay. They can withstand months (even years) of shelf life, which is why they are sometimes referred to as “shelf-stable."
 
Please do not donate open, partially used, or long expired items.
 
Hours
         Every Thursday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm
 
 
Where is the Rock County Emergency Food Shelf located?
         Luverne United Methodist Church
         109 North Freeman Avenue
         Luverne, MN

 How does the food shelf work? 
  1. People hear about the food shelf through their church, social service organization, or from family or friends.  Faced with an emergency situation, every Rock County resident is eligible for help from the food shelf.
  2. Each visitor to the food shelf is asked to fill out a card which includes name, address, age and names of those in the household.
  3. With the help of food shelf volunteers, the person selects food based on personal preferences and the size of his/her family.
  4. Visitors to the food shelf should remember the shelf is designed for emergencies.
  5. The number of visits and the about of food is restricted to one visit per month so that there will always be food for emergencies.
