Who we are:

  • We are staffed by a group of 90 volunteers with a 15 member board of directors.                  

  • We work with churches, clubs and schools throughout our town to bring awareness to the issue of hunger in our community.    

  • We receive no public money and rely solely on the generous donations of businesses, organizations, schools and the people of our community.

What we do:

  • For over 35 years, the Marshfield Food Pantry has been providing nutritious food for Marshfield families in need.

  • In 2016 alone the Food Pantry served 522 families consisting of:

  • 3200 family visits 
  • 1283 residents received assistance
  • 371 children
  • 135 seniors 
  • 308 home deliveries

  • In December of 2017 alone, the Pantry provided food and personal care items to 244 families.

  • Monthly, our families receive food and personal care items. The amount of food a family receives is dependent upon the number of people in the family. The food a family receives from the Food Pantry is only meant to supplement the family's food. A family receives food for approximately 5 days of breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • The only requirements for a family to receive assistance are proof of Marshfield residency and a photo ID.

  • Confidentiality of families using the Pantry is very important to our volunteers.

  • Deliveries are made to homebound, elderly and handicapped residents.

  • School nurses are provided with snacks and juices for hungry students.

  • In November of 2017, 242 families received all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Nothing at the Food Pantry goes to waste. Leftover breads and produce are donated to a local farm.
