Senior Citizens sometimes find that, after they pay their bills, they have little money left to buy groceries each month.

NAPS (Nutrition Assistance Programs for Seniors) provides free, nutritious food to seniors 60 years or older who meet income standards. The TRF Food Shelf (16330 150th St NE) is the monthly distribution site for NAPS in Thief River Falls.

To apply for NAPS, or to learn more about the program, or to help with our monthly food distribution, contact Alecia Hunt with the Food Shelf at 218.684.4097 or

NAPS is a service of the Minnesota Dept. of Health and

North Country Food Bank.
