The Food Pantry is a ministry of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. The Food Pantry works with and CAC (Community Action Coalition) to provide staples to anyone in need of food that resides in Dane County.

Participants are allowed to choose their own food based on food preferences and dietary needs.

The Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon and again on Thursdays from 5:45 to 7:30 PM.

People may participate once every twenty eight to thirty days.

The Food Pantry is always in need of donations. If any group; church youth groups, boy scouts, girl scout troops, and civic groups would like to do a food drive to benefit the food pantry, please contact the church at stmarks@stmarksmadison.org.

Poverty Guidelines
We are so thankful for the congregations that partner with us providing food and volunteers. According to Federal government poverty guidelines, families that are eligible for the food pantry include: a family of one with an annual income of $21, 978, a family of two with an annual income of $29, 637, a family of three with an annual income of $37, 296, a family of four with an annual income of $44, 955 and so on. While some families are able survive on these incomes other families struggle often because of medical expenses. Thank you for this important ministry!

Food PantryFood Pantry Growth
We are no longer a small food pantry but have become a medium sized food pantry as we have increased food distribution by thirty per cent in the past year. We are able to sustain this, in part because of the congregations that regularly collect food for us. They are St. Matthews New Life Lutheran Church, All Saints Lutheran Church, Midvale Lutheran Church, and Trinity United Methodist Church.

Supporting Families at 185% of Poverty Level

While the Friday Meal is a community meal and everyone is welcome, it is recommended that the Food Pantry support families who are at 185% of the poverty level. For example, a family of four may have an income of $44,000. That may sound like a solid middle class salary but if they also have old medical bills or other unpaid bills, they would be welcome at the food pantry. Guests do not show us their financial situation, only an ID. This is just an example to demonstrate we would like to support families who may be working but still struggling financially.
