McCook County Food Pantry

The McCook County Food Pantry has proven to be a much needed service to our county. The food in the Pantry comes from individual donations, Feeding SD or is purchased from local stores. Food costs are paid for by the John D. Hofer Trust, the McCook County Ministerial Association, area churches, individuals and businesses.

 McCook County Food Pantry in Salem is now located on Highway 81 at the address of 640 S. Nebraska St.,

which is on the south end of town next to Blindert Insurance Agency.

 This new location is smaller and does not have a lot of room for everyone to be there at one time. Only ten people at a time will be allowed in. Others will wait outside in their car. It is suggested that people come later, like 10:30 or 11:00 a.m. You will get the same items no matter what time you come to the pantry. Parking is limited too, and should be considered when planning your arrival.

Open: The Third Thursday of Every Month

The hours are 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon for the seniors, and 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. for families.

 We offer a wide range of grocery items, paper products and personal hygiene items.
