During everyone’s life there is a period when we need help.  For many this help comes in the form of food assistance to get them through their time of need.

In a typical 12 month period the Bountiful Basket Food Shelf distributes over 300,000 lbs. of food.  All of the 15,000  individuals served are neigbors and fellow community members who live in Eastern Carver County.  On a typical day over 1,500 lbs. of food is given out at the Chaska foodshelf site.

Through the kindness and generosity of many individuals, families, chruches, schools, organizations, and businesses we have been able to play a small role in helping people lead a healtheir and happier life style.
