St. John Lutheran Church continues its mission of hosting the Maple River Loaves and Fishes food shelf. The mission of the Maple River Loaves and Fishes Food Shelf (MLRF) is "to provide supplemental food assistance to people in need; living, working or having children enrolled in the Maple River School District". The MRLF is staffed by volunteers from 9 local churches and is open to serve clients from 3 - 6 pm on Tuesdays and 9 - noon on Saturdays. Ross Peterson represents St. John on the MRLF board of directors and thus is charged with recruiting volunteers from our church. Opportunities for church members to participate, include volunteering and donating food and/or cash.
