As the Advent project this year for the students of St. Casimir’s School in Wells, the students collected food items for the Wells Area Food Shelf and brought them to the center where they were also given a tour of the facility by the director.

The students had many questions, and it was wonderful for them to see how the food they collected will be used and why it is so needed.

In fact, the director shared that in November alone, the center served 230 individuals from 73 households, who were provided with a total of 3,599 pounds of food.

That is a lot of kindness shared, and it was great for the kids to experience the virtue of charity within their own communities.

The food shelf is at 10 First Ave. SW and is open from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays. However, if there is an emergency need, call 507-553-5824.
