Delano Helping Hands Food Shelf

Delano Helping Hands food shelf, located in the Delano Community Education Building, 140 Elm Avenue., was founded in 1985, and currently has approximately 100 active volunteers.

The food shelf is open for food distribution each Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and every third Thursday it is also open from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The organization helps approximately 45 families on a monthly basis.

Minnesota March Food Share is a big event for the Delano Helping Hands.  Half of the food and donations are collected during March.  Many churches, organizations, and individuals participate.  All donations are kept in the Delano area.

If anyone is interested in helping at the food shelf, call your local church, or Jeanie Pilarski at 763 972-3360.
