How Can I Help?

  • The best way for the community to help at this time is through a monetary gift. With the postponement of the Hastings Tastings event and the closure of Rivertown Treasures, we expect to face a significant shortfall at a time we are anticipating an increase in demand. Financial gifts allow HFS to increase purchases from Second Harvest Heartland and local distributors as we strive to meet the needs at this time. The link above will take you directly to HFS's secure online donation site. Donations can also be made using our secure, locked donation drop box located at the Rivertown Treasures store entrance.

  • The link above will take you to our list of most needed items. Food and personal care donations will be accepted by appointment Monday - Friday; please call 651-437-7134 to set up a donation drop off appointment. Please do not leave food or personal care items at the doors or in the alley.

  • As a precaution, HFS is limiting the number of volunteers utilized at this time, but we are collecting names of individuals who are willing to volunteer should our need increase during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please visit the volunteer page linked above to fill out a form.
