Food Shelf Donations

Each year during Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days, we collect non-perishable food items for our local food shelf. The food shelf is an important resource in our community and is open to residents of Olmsted County. Bring your food item to the Information Booth near the Post Office during Gold Rush and receive a small gift.

Volunteers are vital to the food shelf so your participation is most welcome!  This type of volunteering is an easy and fun way to give back to your community.  Please call Rachel Stanton for more information about volunteering or to schedule a time to visit 507-250-0428 or Lance at 507-367-4952.  Food donations are welcome and can be dropped off either at the Food Shelf during open hours, or at Oronoco City Hall. 

The Food Shelf is open the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 5pm to 7pm in the spring, summer and fall. During the winter, the hours change to 4pm to 6pm. The Oronoco Food Shelf is located in the Presbyterian Church at 20 3rd street SW in Oronoco.
