Hunger Prevention Program
A hunger prevention program running July through October that allows area gardeners to donate extra home-grown fruits and vegetables to those in need. Gardeners bring their produce to drop-off sites in Shawano County where it is distributed to those who can use it.
It's a simple program. No income requirements and no paperwork! All varieties of fruits and vegetables are accepted in quantities both large and small. Produce should be reasonable clean. Containers are provided on-site. This is a "win-win" situation because gardeners' produce will not go to waste, and recipients get healthy food at no cost!
We train people for employment and work with court ordered community services. We want to give those wishing to serve the opportunity to work directly with those in need.
Volunteers and food donations are always needed and greatly appreciated. If you are interest in becoming a volunteer, please fill out the form below.
As we distribute federal commodities, we use federal income guidelines and serve only Shawano County residents.
Mon - Fri: 8:30 am-11:00 am
Under normal circumstances, if Shawano schools are closed due to weather, the pantry will be closed as well. We ask patrons to register by 11:00am.
If you work mornings, and are unable to come in during normal pantry hours please call as arrangements can be made to have a friend or neighbor pick up groceries for you.
