The Mabel Area Food Shelf is looking for volunteers. There are volunteer opportunities for youth groups, or anyone over 18. Some of the duties that volunteers would have the opportunity to help with include stocking shelves, light cleaning, organizing of outerwear, making up school or family bags, or assisting when the food shelf is open. Due to confidentiality, volunteers working when the food shelf is open do need to be over 18. The Mabel Area Food Shelf serves the Mabel and surrounding area with supplemental food for families. The food shelf averages about 30 families that visit the food shelf each month. The food shelf is open from 5-7 p.m. on the first, second, fourth and fifth Thursdays and 10 a.m. – noon on the third Saturday and is located on the second floor of the education wing of the Mabel First Lutheran Church. If you are interested in volunteering, or have a youth group that would be interested in volunteering, please call the food shelf at (507) 493-5783, or contact LeeAnn Howard.
