In the interest of our volunteers and client’s safety, the Sun Prairie Food Pantry has made several changes to keep the Pantry a viable option for those needing our food resources. We are maintaining our same hours of operation and have moved to curbside pick-up only.
INCREASED ACCESS: We are also Increasing access to food and personal care Items until further notice by allowing households to visit the Pantry every other week as opposed to once every 30 days. This includes residents who reside outside the Sun Prairie School District.
Senior citizens who are unable to get to the Food Pantry are encouraged to use a proxy shopper to obtain their food. Seniors who do not have anyone to access the Pantry for them should call 608-513-1044.
Free Transportation - For clients who do not have a way to get to the Pantry, we will continue to provide free transportation to and from the Pantry. Clients in need of this service should contact the Sun Prairie Taxi Service. Clients are strongly encouraged to sign up for the taxi subsidy available at City Hall.

Wisconsin households are eligible to receive commodities at participating food pantries if the total gross income for the household does not exceed 300% of the federal poverty level. Eligibility is based on self-declared income. There are no income eligibility criteria for persons who voluntarily seek meals at soup kitchens or homeless shelters.
