The Waunakee Food Pantry is WEB’s flagship operation.  Operating year round, 4 days per month (during the pandemic, our hours of operation for food distribution can be found on the COVID-19 page), The WFP has served 2,844 individuals in 2020 through 10/31/2020 in 883 households. On average, WFP distributes over 58,000 pounds of food per year, equaling nearly 2.5 tons of food per month.

The Waunakee Food Pantry proudly partners with Second Harvest Food Bank and Community Action Coalition, and receives support from businesses and foundations throughout the community as well as over 200 volunteers.

We are committed to serving our Waunakee and Dane community members, as well as anyone else in need of emergency food. Ample food is available, and you may pick up food as often as needed during our Food Distribution Days. Pre-registration is NOT required to obtain food. A food pre-order form is suggested in advance if you’d prefer a customized food order. To complete a pre-order, fill out a hard copy form located outside the Panty (black mailbox) or an on-line form located above. Please bring an ID when you arrive for food pickup. 

You may also receive food boxes along with meats and dairy choices if you do not complete a pre-order form. For emergency food needs outside of Food Distribution days, please call the Pantry at 608-850-4346 or dial 211 and your needs will be directed to us. If you are looking for program assistance, please email  info@waunakeefoodpantry.org and someone will respond. If you are looking for other types of assistance, please call 608-850-4346 and leave a message, and someone will get back to you. 

Our offices are closed, but our services are still running in new ways.  

WFP is a TEFAP pantry.  Income eligibility for TEFAP pantries has expanded.  If you have a need, please come to our food distribution.

We try to connect you with the assistance, care and concern you need to get you through a crisis.
