Donations of food or money can be made each Sunday in March at any of the

Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated!

Located at ARCC in Akeley, this food shelf is open to everyone in Nevis, Akeley and the surrounding rural areas. People select the items they will use from what is available.

Community Support is the Key

Akeley Churches have food baskets for collecting donations. Cash donations need to be designated for the Akeley or Hubbard County food shelf.

Volunteers are needed to help with getting food from the deep freeze and may show up Tuesdays to help.
