The Food Shelf

The Pella Community Food Shelf is a Christian non-profit mission.  Our goal is to alleviate hunger in our area by providing access to nutritious food to those that need it and building meaningful relationships that inspire hope and self-sustainability. We rely on participation of our community for not only financial support but also volunteers and food donation.

The Pella Food Shelf proudly serves approximately 400 households per month; feeding about 1100 individuals with the summer months at highest count. We are grateful to local organizations that grow and donate fresh produce. 
Without the involvement of local growers providing fresh produce, it would be very difficult to supply enough nutritious food during those months. Our mission has been serving in the Pella community for 36 years.  We are a charity with a desire to demonstrate God’s love by providing help to those in need.
