Helping people with hunger relief

Get Help

9.5% of households in Minnesota are food insecure and will struggle to find enough food this week.  This equates to 1 in 10 households, many with children.


Many volunteer opportunities exist to help with the Bountiful Basket food shelf.


Bountiful Basket relies on the generosity of area community members, churches, civic organizations/groups and businesses for our continued success.

Make A Real Change In Someone’s Life

Bountiful Basket Food Shelf has been serving Chaska, Carver, Chanhassen, Victoria and the surrounding area for 15 years helping people and families with hunger relief.  New in July 2023, Bountiful Basket opened a second site in Cologne. This food shelf’s primary service area includes individuals and families living in the city of Cologne as well as those living in the Hancock, Benton, San Francisco, and Dahlgren Townships. Individuals from surrounding communities welcome as well. There are no income requirements to receive food assistance.

We strive to ensure every individual has access to healthy and nutritious food through our grocery store-like experience.  We believe a non-judgmental, compassionate experience are key components as we serve our community.
