Renville County Food Shelf


Effective March 18, 2020:
Due to the recent COVID-19 circumstances theRenville County Food Shelf
will be implementing Curb Side Pick-ups.

 Once you arrive at the food shelf please call 320-523-5339 if you do not have a cell phone knock on the door and wait as the door will be locked during business hours.

You will be given a pick-up number once you are registered. Please wait in your vehicles while we prep your food boxes.  Once your boxes are ready a cart with your boxes of food will be placed outside by the door. The cart will be marked with your number. Load your food and return the cart to the door area.

Are you homebound? If you are homebound and have a food crisis call the food shelf at 320-523-5339 as we have a contingency plan in place. If no answer please leave your name and number slowly and clearly, two times so we can get back to you.



The Renville County Food shelf plays an important role in providing healthy food and other necessities to Renville County residents who may not otherwise be able to afford them.  If you and your family are in need of assistance, please call or stop into the food shelf during open hours.
