We’re accepting produce

August 14, 2012
Fairmont Sentinel

To the Editor:

Heaven's Table Food Shelf, Fairmont, will accept surplus fresh fruits and vegetables in good condition one-half hour before the food shelf opens. Produce will then be distributed during the open hours that day. These times are 4:30-5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 8:30-9 a.m. Saturdays.

We do not have a lot of extra refrigerated storage capacity but would gladly accept quantities to serve the 15 to 20 families that come each time Heaven's Table is open.

Heaven's Table Food Shelf is also in need of additional food and monetary donations to purchase additional food. Since opening May 15, we have served more than 220 households with more than 10,000 pounds of food. There continues to be a great food need in Martin County, especially in this last month of summer when all the school-age kids are at home. Please consider a donation, which can be mailed to Heaven's Table Food Shelf, 1243 Lake Ave., Suite 333, Fairmont, MN 56031.

Thank you to those who have already supported the food shelf with your donations of time, money or supplies. It is all needed and appreciated by the families being served.

Linda Meschke,


Heaven's Table Food Shelf
