Becker County Food shelf - *UPDATE*
Starting in June, there will be boxes of food available on a first come, first served basis. We will run it like a produce drop. There will be 10 # boxes of mixed Bongard cheeses, 10 #boxes of mixed dairy, 30 # boxes of mixed fruit (like the 4-H or FFA sells), and a 10 # box of meat (sausages and meatballs). We want to limit it to one box of each item to a household. So people could get 4 boxes at one time of different items.

Resources for families
Bills and Creditors
Information for help from creditors and bills due to loss of income due to CoronaVirus:
“When you call your creditors, mortgage lenders, utilities, etc. asking for help due to loss of income, if you just say you've lost work, income, jobs, show cancellations, whatever, they can't help you. Once you say "I have no income due to the Coronavirus", that's the keyword they need to hear to be able to enact their new policies, defer payments, halt late fees, etc. And, apparently, they can't coach you to say it. You have to do it yourself.”
