We Are Here to Help

We serve individuals and families within the McFarland School District who are struggling with hunger, treating all Pantry guests with respect and confidentiality. Our goal is to offer independence while getting needed groceries and household essentials.

Come during Pantry hours to receive food and household items. If you wish to speed up your shopping time you may print the current shopping list, make your selections, and bring the list with you to the pantry.  Additional “special” items will continue to be offered as available.
