Food Service FAQs
If you need help, we are here for you. All are welcome, regardless of where you live.
Who can use the pantry?
To use the full services of the pantry, your combined household income must be equal to or less than the amount shown on the TEFAP table below. This includes residents outside of Sun Prairie. If you do not meet these income guidelines, but still need help, you may still use the food pantry. While you will not be eligible to receive the government commodity (TEFAP) items, we will do our best to provide the food and personal care items that you need.

Healthy food options like fresh vegetables, fruit, cereal, meat, milk, cheese, bread, kid’s snacks, juice, eggs, and senior boxes. We also have personal care items such as feminine hygiene products, diapers, soaps, and more.
How does the process work?

Free transportation is available for Sun Prairie residents who do not have a way to get to the food pantry. We will provide FREE transportation to and from the pantry. Clients who need this service should contact Sun Prairie Taxi Service at 608-837-5550.
