Welcome to the Big Lake Community Food Shelf Website

The Big Lake Community Food Shelf is a 501 [c] [3] non-profit organization founded in 1995 by a group of citizens with the Big Lake area. This group of individuals saw the need to help those within their community with access to emergency food assistance.

Today the Board of Directors, along with a dedicated group of volunteers, continues to serve those within Big Lake School District #727 with emergency food access as well as providing additional resources and assistance with supplemental programs through federal, state and county agencies. The food shelf takes pride in providing a leadership role in supporting and providing education and resources for those within the community.


DID YOU KNOW……..More than 49 million Americans, including more than 16 million children live in households that do not have consistent access to nutritious food. That’s equivalent of the populations of California and Ohio going hungry.
