 A LITTLE BACKGROUND:

In the fall of 2005, the first food pantry in Oconto Falls opened to serve just nine people.  Within six months, the pantry was open four hours every Tuesday with clients allowed to come every week to shop for their households.  Now three and a half years later, the pantry is serving over 100 households every week.

From the beginning, the board decided this pantry would be run like Jesus would; therefore all who come who are hungry, are fed.  An averaage of thirty pounds of food is given to each family.

The pantry is supported by the congregations and members of Grace Lutheran, Riverview Alliance, St. Anthony & St. Patrick's Catholic and United Methodist churches as well as others of the Oconto Falls Area.  Over 100 volunteers keep the pantry running but help is always needed.
