Catholic Charities partners with Second Harvest and local parishes to provide individuals and families in rural areas access to nutritional food.
Six Rivers Food Pantry
Catholic Charities’ brick-and-mortar food pantry location – the Six Rivers Food Pantry – is located at 222 W. Amelia St. in Cassville. The pantry is open Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8-9:30 a.m.
Mobile Food Pantries
Since 2005, the Catholic Charities Mobile Food Pantry program has been helping residents in rural areas stretch their grocery budgets a bit more by providing produce, meat and other necessities each month at parishes throughout the Diocese of Madison.
In 2021, the mobile food pantry program served 6,747 residents with assistance from 447 volunteers, who provided 6,729 hours of their time. There is no cost for participants, and all are welcome regardless of income level. Funding is provided through Catholic Charities fundraising efforts, grants and the Jack De Loss Charitable Fund.
Mobile Pantry Locations and Dates
The mobile food pantry program is intended to serve rural areas which do not have access to larger food pantry options that are typically available in more metropolitan areas. It’s a collaborative effort between Catholic Charities, Catholic parishes and the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin.
