2020 March Food Share.png

March Food Share Month

Over 3 million visits are made to Minnesota Food Shelves each year. Food shelves can make cash donations stretch farther than food donations because of their access to discount products and programs. Help us feed families in our area by making a cash donation to the Pine River Area Food Shelf today. Stop in or contact us for more information. 


2020 Spaghetti Fundraiser
