The Food Shelf helps low income residents meet needs and actively engages volunteers.



Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a temporary food benefit available to Minnesota families with children who would have received free or reduced-price meals when schools were open. More info HERE.

If a household with children between ages 5-18 was on SNAP, food support, on March 18, 2020, they do not need to apply for P-EBT. They will receive the P-EBT benefits automatically on their SNAP-EBT card, if their SNAP EBT is still active.

Households that weren't receiving SNAP on March 18 who had children, ages 5-18, receiving free or reduced lunch or enrolled in a school that provided free lunch to all students need to apply to receive the $325 per student. The P-EBT application for these households is HERE.

Lakes and Pines agency-wide advocates will help people apply for P-EBT and answer any questions they have. People may call 1-800-832-6082 and select Option 4 to be connected with an advocate.

Area Churches provide volunteers to help distribute food. Food is purchased primarily through Second Harvest Heartland who works closely with food shelves, food pantries and other meal programs.

The Braham Area Food Shelf is open each Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to noon.  It is located at the South entry to the Event Center. You can reach the food shelf at (320) 425-9077.
