Is Money Tight? FoodShare and
the Food Pantry Can Help
Many individuals and families are struggling to make ends meet. FoodShare is a food assistance program and is for anyone with low or no income. This includes working people or those receiving Social Security, SSI, SSDI or Unemployment.
If your gross monthly household income is less than the amount listed in the FoodShare Guidelines, chances are good that you will be eligible. Call the FoodShare Helpline today at 1-877-FOOD-635 to complete a confidential prescreening and make an appointment for free application assistance right in Reedsburg.
REEDSBURG FOOD PANTRY
The Reedsburg Area Food Pantry is available to help local families by providing both packaged and fresh food along with some basic personal items up to twice a month for each eligible household. The amount of items dispersed is based on the number of people living in a household. To qualify for assistance, you must provide proof of a current address in either the Reedsburg or Weston school district, names and birth dates of all household members, and have an income level at 150% of the Federal Poverty Level or below. (Please note that this is less than the amounts listed at the right for the FoodShare program.)
The Reedsburg Food Pantry is located next to the Recreation Center at the rear entrance to City Hall. It is open every Wednesday from 10 am - noon and 4 - 6 pm.
If you would like to make a donation to the Reedsburg Area Food Pantry, items can be dropped off on Tuesdays from 8:30 - 10:30 am, or on Wednesdays from 8:30 - noon and 4 - 6 pm. If you need to schedule a different time or have any questions, please contact Bess Little at 524-4937.
