Whitewater Community Food Pantry helped 440 families in 2018, receives $1000 donation from the Kiwanis Breakfast Club

A Message from the Whitewater Community Food Pantry Co-Manager Pat Chaput

The Whitewater Community Food Pantry is the largest food pantry in Walworth County.  440 families were served this past year.  Over the 52 weeks of 2018,  2,607 visits were made by our patrons. 7,867 individuals came to the Pantry.

Patrons get groceries once a month and can come every week for baking and produce.

The Whitewater Community Food Pantry Board of Directors, Managers and Volunteers wish to thank the Whitewater Community for their generous support!  Our patrons are very grateful for everything they receive.

We also wish to thank our many volunteers.  We have drivers who pick up and deliver to the pantry from places like Panera Bread, Walmart, Festival Foods and Feeding America, and volunteers who serve our patrons, stock shelves and sort the food.

The people of Whitewater make this possible.  Thank you very much!

And we are grateful to Cub Scout Pack 173 “Scouting For Food” who collected and sorted 937 lbs. of food for the Pantry this past  Saturday, March 9.  They did a marvelous job!
