Fort Atkinson Food Pantry Will Remain Open
The Fort Atkinson Food Pantry has prepared the following information for the community about our response during the coronavirus emergency.
During the current coronavirus emergency, the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry is planning to stay open during our regular distribution hours of 3:00 to 5:30 PM on Mondays and Thursdays at our 715 Jones Avenue location. Our priorities are to continue to provide food to those in need while protecting our clients and volunteers.
To accomplish this we are changing our procedures to limit the number of clients in the food pantry at one time. We will be handing out numbers on a first come basis, but be prepared to wait outside or in cars until your number is admitted. Arriving later during the serving hours may avoid the initial crowd. Everyone will be able to get food.
We are also requiring the use of hand sanitizer in the pantry and disinfecting surfaces frequently.
The Food Pantry realizes that some people may be temporarily out of work during this crisis. People who currently have no income or meet our low income guidelines and need help to provide enough food for themselves or their families are encouraged to seek assistance at the Food Pantry.
The Food Pantry supplies supplemental food once per month per family. If your family requires additional food assistance before the end of the month, please call 920 563-6992 and leave a message.
If you are sick or vulnerable to the coronavirus please don’t come to the pantry building. We have a small program of delivery to those in need.
Please text or leave a message at 920 397-0140 if you want more information about the delivery program. The Fort Atkinson Food Pantry serves those who reside in the School District of Fort Atkinson. Residents of other school districts should call their local pantries.
Please use this information as appropriate.
You can email me or call me (920 568-1271) for additional information.
