Shepherd of the Valley partners with 360 Communities to operate an in-house food shelf, located at 12650 Johnny Cake Ridge Road in Apple Valley, near the Minnesota Zoo.

The food shelf is entirely dependent on donations of non-perishable food and monetary donations to purchase produce and other groceries.

For questions or to get more information about this food shelf, contact Lisa Hegerman at 952.985.7329.


360 Communities answers the phone from
9:00 am - 5:00 pm.


Regular volunteer shifts are on Tuesday and Thursday. Volunteers are also needed to pick up and deliver food. Learn more.


Please bring non-perishable food items to church:

  • Weekly office hours: Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
  • Worship times: Saturday 4:30 - 6:00 pm and Sunday 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Monetary donations are also needed to purchase food. Write "Food Shelf" in the check memo line or in the "Misc Benev." description when giving online.

  • When shopping, keep in mind healthy choices such as low sodium and low sugar options.

We get a lot of wonderful food donations, but we don't always have everything that we need to feed our client families. Monetary donations are used to purchase whatever we need to round out our pantry.

Please prayerfully consider making a donation to support the food shelf. Write “Food Shelf” in the memo line of a check or type “Food Shelf” on the “Misc Benev” line when you give online. Thank you for your support!
