Food Sources

Sources of Food and Income

Donations of food and money come from churches, individuals, grants, food drives, and community organizations.

Gleanings are good, useable, food salvaged from local merchants.

The Bemidji Community Food Shelf (BCFS) also purchases food from North Country Food Bank and the The Food Group through the Feeding America Program. This food is donated by major food producers in Minnesota and nationwide in cooperation with Minnesota Food Share.
