How to Receive Services

First Visit

Come to the Food Pantry during open hours to register. You will be asked to fill out an information card. The card will ask for basic information such as income level, number of persons in the household, and employment history.

You must present proof of living within the Sauk Prairie School District area. On your first visit, two different forms of identification will be required. This can be a valid ID and a piece of qualifying mail OR 2 different pieces of qualifying mail. Examples of qualifying mail would be a utility bill or rental receipt from within the last 30 days that shows your name and address.

Each household may receive food once a month. You may choose which one of the open hours works best for you. 

Each visit, you will sign your registration card, show proof of address, and report any changes in your household information. This is strictly enforced. 

Proof of address requires one piece of qualifying mail. Examples of qualifying mail would be a utility bill or rental receipt from within the last 30 days that shows your name and address. 

Important Information

The following is a list of guidelines and requirements when receiving Food Pantry services. Your cooperation will help ensure a pleasant experience for everyone.

  • All the food that we distribute comes from donations (food or money to purchase food) from our community.
  • Please be fair to everyone by taking only the posted limits and do not ask for additional food or extra services.
  • When possible, bring your own bags.
  • Park in the upper lot and walk down if you are able. This leaves the limited spaces in the lower lot for those who cannot manage the walk. Volunteers will help you get your food to your vehicle.
  • There are five distributions each month. Food is received all during the month and shelves are restocked on a regular basis. No distribution consistently has more food than any other distribution.
  • We have no control over the length of the wait for food or for the lack of a large indoor space in which to wait.  Your cooperation and patience is appreciated both with the pantry volunteers and with one another.

Use of the pantry is a privilege, not a right.  We reserve the right to ask anyone causing a disturbance or problem to leave.
