Pine River Shares operates a food share program for Pine River Valley residents. Several times a month, we fill grocery bags with items like canned goods, pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, onions, and carrots. In warm weather months, we offer lots of fresh local produce as well as eggs.

Whether you would like a food bag once in a while or every month, you are welcome to come and share in this program. No proof of income or any other information is required.

If you would like to help, here are some ideas:

  • Pick up extra nutritious, shelf-stable food to donate next time you shop
  • If you’re a gardener, join the “Plant a Row” program and raise some extra
  • Help us glean food from over-abundant gardens, local fruit trees and after harvests

We can also use volunteers for transportation and packing the bags. And donations are always welcome, of course!

Free family food bags are available 2nd and 4th Mondays in Bayfield from 11:00 until 1:00 p.m. at the Old Mid School Gym, and 2nd Saturdays in Ignacio at ELHI from 11am-noon.

USDA Commodities are distributed on the 4th Monday of the month, 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the PRS office. Call the office for eligibility information.
