As winter comes to the Northland during this unusual year the food shelf is busier than normal. We had increased usage since the onset of COVID; many of our "shoppers" had reduced hours or no seasonal summer work at all this year, kids are home for more for meals with alternate day school schedules, and furnaces are in need of fuel. The winter months typically have greater demand for food, and this year we expect it to be even greater. We have been distributing food curbside and also taking food to the Babbitt community.
With generous donations from individuals such as yourself we are able to provide healthy nutritious food to our at-risk residents. In this season of COVID we have been delivering food to four apartment buildings in Ely.
Would you please donate to our Year-End/Winter Fundraiser and brighten the lives of children, adults and seniors. Your gift to the Ely Area Food Shelf will be used quickly to provide food to those who have run out of options in alleviating hunger. 70% of our funding comes from individuals and we could not do what we do without YOU! Please help us by making a donation today. Our shopper's are very grateful. Thank you for your generosity!
