Twin Valley, MN — As we approach the Holidays and the cold weather season, the demand at local food shelves is increasing. The Good Samaritan Food Shelf, located at the St. Williams Catholic Church in Twin Valley, is one of those looking for some assistance so they can adequately help those in need over Thanksgiving and the rest of the winter. Nancy Crompton, who runs the Good Samaritan Food Shelf, says as this pandemic continues their demand has risen steadily, but their income and food supply has dropped.

Each Wednesday, the Good Samaritan Food Shelf gives out prepackaged boxes of cereal, soup and crackers, pasta, pancake mix, and other non-perishable items, but next week with Thanksgiving they are hoping to give out Turkey breast, potatoes, stuffing mix, and other Thanksgiving fixings. Crompton says their main goal moving forward with the winter is to do everything they can to make sure families are able to get by during these difficult times.

People can help either financially or by donating non-perishable food items. Checks can be dropped off at the Valley United Bank in Twin Valley or by contacting Nancy at 784-8363. And if there are people out there in the community that need food assistance, Crompton says they are always willing to help without judgement.

The Good Samaritan Food Shelf is open Wednesdays from 1-4pm at the St. William’s Catholic Church in Twin Valley. For more information, please contact Nancy at 784-8363.
