Next Open Day Tuesday May 15, 2018

4:30 pm to 6:30 pm 

The Waunakee Food Pantry has been sharing food and bringing hope to hungry people for over 40 years.  Our success can be attributed to the support we receive from generous donors, sponsors and friends like you.  Through empowerment, education and partnership the Waunakee Food Pantry brings together community resources to feed people in need.



We are open the first Monday from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, the second Tuesday from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, the third Wednesday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, and the fourth Thursday from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm of each month.

Party Donations

We get ask a lot this time of year if we can accept food donations from parties. First we want to thank everyone who is thinking of helping us out, however we are a small food pantry only open four times a month so fresh food is generally a problem for us. We must follow these State of Wisconsin food safety rules:

  • Prepared foods and meals can only be donated by licensed entities such as restaurants and food distributors.

  • Food donations are limited to foods or food portions which have not been previously served.



Girl Scout Troop 2827 Make a Donation

Troop 2827, besides making a donation of Girl Scout cookies, also spent $150 at Piggly Wiggly and other stores to donate a total of 174.6 lbs to the Waunakee Food Pantry. When selling the cookies, they offered the customers to "If you can't eat them, maybe you can treat them" if they just wanted to make a monetary donation instead of buying cookies. The boxes of Girl Scout cookies sold, 68, resulted in an additional pairing of 68 gallons of milk from the Dane County Dairy Promotion Committee.
