People Helping People increase food security
Requirements to use The Neighbors' Place food pantry are simply:
About 425 families visit our food pantry every week. Visitors receive a certain number of items (based on their family size) and can visit the pantry every two weeks. We recommended that visitors to our pantry bring their own bags and boxes to transport their food.
As the largest food pantry in Marathon County, we work closely with the Marathon County Hunger Coalition to increase food security in our community. We have the capacity to act as a food bank, storing and distributing food to more than 20 food pantries, as well as other nonprofits, faith-based groups and schools. A large walk-in refrigerator and freezer allow us to accept donations of, and store, perishable food in addition to nonperishable food.
