MORRIS – Food shelf volunteers and friends gathered on Thursday to recognize Minnie Benson who, along with her late husband, Dwain, was instrumental in keeping the Stevens County Food Shelf running.


Benson is the most recent Stevens County resident recognized by “Pay it Forward, Stevens County.”

The Bensons worked with the food shelf for about 25 years, beginning in 1984 after Minnie retired from working at the hospital.
