The Parish Mobile Food Pantry serves rural communities who do not have access to the larger pantries in Madison.
Parishioners from participating Catholic churches volunteer to unload and distribute food delivered to the parish by a Second Harvest food-bank truck. Parish volunteers organize each monthly pantry and assist their neighbors who depend on the pantry for food or to help offset other expenses (such as medical and utility bills).
People who use the pantry do not need to be Catholic or a member of the church holding the pantry. No ID is needed to participate. In just a short time, hundreds of pounds of food are given to those who need it.
