With three weekly food distributions in Pelican Rapids, nobody should go hungry in the Pelican Rapids area. 

In addition to the Pelican Rapids Community Food Shelf, there are two separate food distributions on Sundays. (See accompanying article.)

For several months, there have been weekly Sunday food distributions at the Pelican Multicultural Center, beginning at noon. These will continue indefinitely. 

The Pelican Rapids Islamic Mosque has sponsored the event, with Pelican businessman Abdi Dool (Dool Transport) picking up food every week from Minneapolis-based non-profit “Feeding Our Future.”

According to Dool, part of the weekly shipment has also been shipped on to Moorhead and to Perham. 

The number of people served in Pelican varies somewhat, but there are generally about 200 bags. 

The Multicultural Center food distribution begins at noon Sundays.
