FOOD PANTRY NEWS FOR DENMARK & SURROUNDING AREAS

  • Effective October 15, the Food Pantry at All Saints will no longer exist. We are combining our efforts with other area churches and organizations to operate the Denmark Community Cupboard and Ruby’s Pantry. We appreciate your support throughout the years and keep in mind that donations can still be brought to the parish office or left in the church side entrance but will be transferred to the Community Cupboard.
  • There is a drop-off cupboard in the back of St. James Church to accept donations at anytime for the Community Cupboard.
  • A new monthly food distribution outreach is starting in October in Denmark called “Ruby’s Pantry.” Unlike the Community Cupboard, Ruby’s Pantry welcomes any and all guests who may be looking for a way to extend their monthly food budget. Anyone who eats can be a Ruby’s Pantry guest! There are no income or residency requirements. Each food “share” is an upfront $20 donation, which amounts to over $125 in food. Guests bring two large totes (laundry baskets or similar size) and are able to select the items they need or would use. The products range from fresh meat, produce, bread, cheese, milk, eggs and often times an assortment of other groceries like cereal, granola bars, and chips. These foods come from distributors in Wisconsin and Minnesota, not the local community. For more information about Ruby’s Pantry, their mission and outreach efforts, visit www.rubyspantry.org.

 About 50 volunteers are needed to help with Ruby’s Pantry in 2 hour shifts on the day of distribution. A training session for volunteers will be held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church on Tuesday, Oct. 9 from 6:00 - 8:00pm. To sign up as a volunteer, call All Saints Church at 863-5256.
