The mission of The Westonka Food Shelf is to reduce hunger in our local community by respectfully providing nutritionally balanced food options to those in need. The Westonka Food Shelf began serving our community in 1969. Thanks to our community's generosity, a mission that started with helping just a few families has grown to provide healthy options to many needing assistance in Mound, Minnetrista, Navarre, Minnetonka Beach, Spring Park, St. Bonifacius, Tonka Bay, Independence and parts of Orono today.
Donations are Used to Feed Those in Need!
We are fully staffed by volunteers and our facility is generously donated by Our Lady of the Lake Church. Without these major expenses, we are able to put our donations to use for those we serve!
$1 Donated Translates Into $9 of Groceries
Our buying power is exponentially enhanced by our partnership with local foodbanks. A dollar donated to Westonka Food Shelf can purchase $9 or more worth of groceries. Consider donating today!
