Donate Food

Donating food is the most direct method of supporting the Food Pantry’s mission. A good rule of thumb for donating is: if you’d serve it, we want it. We handle all types of perishable and non-perishable foods, but here is a shortlist of items we look for the most and the times we accept them.

Donations hours

Monday – Friday, 9 am-4 pm
Additional evening hours: Thursday, 6-8 pm
Saturday, 9:30-11:30 am

If you have questions about making a food donation call 262-522-2374.

The FOOD Pantry will be closed on the following days:
New Year's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Weekend (Thursday, Friday, & Saturday), Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. The FOOD Pantry may also close during weather emergencies.
