  2. You will need to provide identification and proof of address for all members of the household the first time you come to the pantry and annually after that.  Once that is completed, only the proof of identity and address are required from the household member picking up the food.  All of your information is treated as confidential.
  3. Clients may use the pantry once a month.
  4. Emergency food bags are available four (4) times a year.
  5. Once you arrive at the pantry, you will check in at the desk, provide your proof of identity and address, and then a volunteer will take you through the pantry to pick out items according to your household size.

What if I need a ride?

Cab fare for the return home is available, if requested, to senior citizens (65 years or older) or those who are disabled – but only for the ride home with groceries.

Free rides to and from the pantry are provided by the Affordable Transportation/RSVP ride service.  After you make an appointment with the Pantry (call 608-873-8103), call Richard at 608-873-6112 to schedule a ride.

What if I don’t speak English?

If you don’t speak English and need assistance, you can bring along an interpreter, or we can use the Over the Phone Interpreting Service.  Required forms are written in English, Spanish, and Hmong.
