Beginning Monday, March 23rd, Waconia United Food Shelf volunteers will pack a seven-day supply of food and essential items into bags. Clients will stay in their vehicles and volunteers will bring the bag(s) of food out to the vehicle. The number of bags received will depend on the family size. For clients with children, additional items will be included to supplement lunch and snacks.
All are welcome to use the services of the Waconia United Food Shelf, including new clients.
Thank you for your patience as we determine new processes to make sure you, our volunteers, staff, and others are safe and we can still ensure that we can still offer services to the community.
We have been so grateful for the outpouring of support and donations. As we determine the best way to distribute food to our clients, we will be looking for new volunteers to support packing food bags, distributing food to clients, and picking up food from our sources.
If you are willing to help, please complete this survey:
We will reach out to you as needed.
At this time we do not recommend that anyone with a chronic health condition volunteer. If you are sick please cancel your shift – any volunteer that is showing signs of illness will be asked to leave and return when well.
