Host A Food Drive

Thank you for considering hosting a food drive for your business or organization. Ongoing scheduled food drives are in March, through area churches, and in May, through the local Post Office. Our shelves need filling especially in Summer and early Fall when we see an increase in household visits.

Call 651-385-7521 in advance of organizing your food drive and we will let you know what items are needed at that time. We will arrange our volunteers to receive your donations after your drive ends.

 Donate Dollars

If you would like to make a monetary donation, thank you! You can send money now through PayPal even if you don’t have a PayPal account. Just click the button above. You can also make checks out to “Red Wing Area Food Shelf” and either mail or drop off during open hours. 

With every $1 you donate, we are able to buy $4 worth of food at the Channel One Food Bank in Rochester, Minnesota. We also purchase food items from local retailers. We are an all volunteer organization so over 90% of all financial donations go directly securing food for our neighbors in need.
