About the Food Pantry from the Director


What we do:

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

  • In 2020 alone the Food Pantry served 646 families consisting of:

  • 2825 family visits 
  • 1700 residents received assistance
  • 355 children
  • 263 seniors 

  • 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.

  • Spouses and families of deployed servicemen and women are encouraged to use the Pantry.

  • In November of 2020, 320 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.
