Memory Verse of the Week
Nehemiah 6:3, NIrV 

“So I sent messengers to them with my answer. I replied, ‘I’m working on a huge project. So I can’t get away. Why should the work stop while I leave it? Why should I go down and talk with you?'”

Here is some info on what to expect:

We are moving to a CURBSIDE model of service. Both existing and new clients are being asked to park along the curb on Main Street in front of the food shelf – please be sure to begin the line of vehicles all the way down to the four-way stop and WAIT in your vehicle until a volunteer brings a shopping list of available foods. Additional instructions will be given at this time. If you do not have a vehicle please wait on the green bench outside our front door and we will assist you. Please note that NO clients will be served inside the food shelf at this time.

If you are sick please DO NOT come to the food shelf – send an adult to get food on your behalf or call and we will do our best to make arrangements.

We will keep our Facebook page and our phone message (763-477-6098) current with any updates in food service.

Thank you for your patience as we understand that this is a different way of doing business at the food shelf. It will allow us to follow CDC guidelines while serving clients in a safe and orderly way and provide food with love for every table!
