The Mission of the Becker County Food Pantry is: To serve Becker County residents in need with programs that provide food, promote the value of nutrition, and make connections to community resources to ensure a meaningful impact to our community’s wellbeing. In 2020 the Food Pantry served 4,116 families totaling 13,902 individuals including children and senior citizens, which were provided with 443,007 pounds of food.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made this Give to the Max Day Campaign an especially critical one.  We have had to make dramatic changes in our operations to meet the growing needs of our community in the safest way possible.  In 2020 and 2021, the Food Pantry has served as a direct beneficiary of state and federal programs designed to get food and supplies to those most impacted by the pandemic.  It has been an honor for us as an organization to play a key role in the response to this crisis.  And we are proud to say that our careful management of these funds has allowed us to build a healthy reserve for future food purchases.  The focus of our Give to the Max Campaign, therefore, is to create a special unrestricted fund that can support our most critical infrastructure needs.   Unrestricted donations will allow us to make investments in equipment and facilities that will prepare the Food Pantry to better serve our community now and into the future. 

 The support of our community has been truly inspirational, especially during the past year, and we sincerely appreciate your support as we continue our 39-years of service as Becker County’s sole Food Pantry.   If you prefer your donation to be used exclusively for food purchases, instead of an unrestricted gift, please make note in the dedication section of the checkout form.

The Pantry is open from 12-3pm Tuesdays and Thursdays at our building on the fairgrounds.  If you have questions or would like further information, please call us at 218-846-0142. 

Thank you for your generosity and commitment to a hunger-free Becker County.
