The Farmington Food Shelf recently moved down the hall in the Farmington Area Public Schools’ Instructional Service Center building at 510 Walnut Street. Volunteer lead Cherie Rudolph says that when the school district remodeled, they gave special attention to the food shelf’s needs.
With the new space, the Farmington Food Shelf has a dedicated entrance at Door 8, an intake space to meet with families (post-pandemic), and added flexibility in hours.
Over the past few months, the Farmington Food Shelf has increased its rescue food pickups. It has become TEFAP-certified (The Emergency Food Assistance Program), which will provide access to an increased amount and variety of foods.

“The school district values the services we provide families. They really make the Farmington Food Shelf a priority.”
