Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry

Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry


Beginning the week of Oct. 12, our Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry will be open ONLY Fridays (no longer Mondays) from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. The last open date will be Friday, Oct. 23 and closed after that date. We are very grateful for the community’s incredible support – in many ways – over the past five months to help us offer this service for our neighbors in need. If you or someone you know needs emergency food, please find other available help:  In English: ➡️ https://bit.ly/3dk7vNx   En Espanol: ➡️ https://bit.ly/3nuTykJ

We care about our community. In response to the health crisis, Sheboygan County Food Bank launched a drive-thru food pantry to distribute fresh food items as well as non-perishable food and personal care items directly to our neighbors.

Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry is located at Glacier Transit Storage (GTS), Building C, 4910 Frontage Road in Sheboygan. GTS has graciously allowed us to store pallets of boxes in their warehouse and hand out boxes in their parking lot. This new pantry serves families who were previously served at school meal sites and anyone else in need of emergency food (no registration required) and is open Mondays and Fridays, 10 AM – 12 PM. To receive the boxes, clients drive up to the southside of GTS’s warehouse at Building C where volunteers with masks and gloves safely place the boxes in the trunks of clients’ vehicles. The types of fresh products within the the Farmers to Families Food Boxes may vary each week.
