Shepherd of the Valley partners with 360 Communities to operate Our Daily Bread Food Shelf housed at our church campus located on 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.

Why We Need Monetary Donations Too
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!
