                     HISTORY

The Pipestone County Food Shelf has been serving the residents of Pipestone county since 1982.  It was incorporated in November, 2005, with fifteen area churches on the original charter.  In September, 2006, the food shelf received a ruling from the IRS establishing it as 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.

Due to the growing need and increased variety of products available, the Board of Directors established a building committee in April, 2012, to locate a larger facility.  In September, 2012, the food shelf moved to its current location at 223 2nd Street NW, in Pipestone.  This move tripled our available space.

Thanks to the generous support from its member churches, individuals, businesses, schools, community associations, and grants during 2018, the Food Shelf:
          o   Served 1940 households
          o   Served 6447 individuals
          o   152,290 pounds of food were distributed
               (126,908 meals)
 

Who May Use The Food Shelf?

          Distribution Method

Beginning in September, 2012, the Food Shelf changed it's method of food distribution from a version of "pre-packed" to "Client Choice".
