Sun Prairie Food Pantry Services

We invite families and individuals challenged by hunger to visit the Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry. We address hunger-related concerns with personalized service, compassion, and dignity. 

Food and Personal Care Items

Neighbors struggling with food insecurity can visit the food pantry once every 14 days for healthy food options including fresh vegetables, fruit, cereal, meat, pasta, milk, cheese, bread, kid’s snacks, juice, eggs, weekly kid’s boxes, and senior boxes. 

The pantry also offers personal care items including feminine hygiene products, diapers, laundry soap, deodorant, toothpaste and more. 

Senior Boxes for Ages 60 and Over

Working with the Community Action Coalition (CAC), the food pantry is one of the largest distributors of senior boxes in Dane County. We distributed 1,744 boxes to low-income seniors in 2020. Every senior box contains a healthy mix of supplemental food items.

To qualify for the program, you must be 60 or older and meet a monthly income requirement of 130% at or belowthe federal poverty level, so $1,353 for one person or $1,832 for 2 people.

Transportation Services

We make FREE taxi service available to Sun Prairie residents. Call (608) 837-5550 to receive taxi transport to and from the food pantry.

Sun Prairie School Box Meals

Households can pick up seven-day meal boxes for children, ages 18 and under. Boxes include seven FREE breakfasts and seven FREE lunches for families that need them. The Sun Prairie School District provides the boxes. 

Thanksgiving Baskets

In 2020, the food pantry distributed 410 Thanksgiving baskets to ensure clients have food for a holiday meal. Sign-up runs from October 1 to October 31 (may end sooner if we meet our request limit). We distribute baskets on the 3rd Saturday in November.

Mobile Food Pantry

A mobile food pantry is held at Westside School in Sun Prairie on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at 4:30PM and stays open until all food is gone.
