These are challenging times and we all might need a little extra help. Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, along with its network of NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin agency partners, are here to help.

Find Food

Our Program Locator provides a list of food assistance options for each of the communities we serve throughout NE Minnesota and NW Wisconsin. These programs are available to those who are in crisis or meet 300% of the federal poverty guideline (Family size 1 = $38,280; 2 = $51,720, 3 = $65,160, 4 = $78,600).

      Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP)

      The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), is a temporary USDA program meant to assist anyone in need of food assistance and especially those impacted by COVID-19. We’re distributing free perishable food boxes through a variety of distribution sites throughout the Northland. Participants are able to pick up for family or friends (limit 4 households per vehicle). Distributions are in a low-contact, safe drive-through format.

      Details about April CFAP distributions can be found here
