Inter County's Food Shelf serves the counties of Red Lake, Polk, Pennington and Clearwater. We have a food shelf available to anyone who needs emergency help with a food box.
Food Shelf Hours: 8:00am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday
The food shelf is funded by community donations and fundraisers. We are able to use our funds to purchase food at a lower cost through North Country Food Bank at a rate of $1 for $4 worth of food. In addition to food, we also get donations of health & beauty items and household cleaning items from area churches for our client's needs.
We thank all of our donors. If you would like to assist our local food shelf, please consider donating – contact our office at 888.778.4008 to make a donation.
