Door County Food Pantry

Residents in need of emergency and/or supplemental food are welcome to apply!


We are open 11 AM – 4 PM every Tuesday and Thursday at 131 S Third Ave in Sturgeon Bay. Due to COVID-19 our pantry is not “client choice” at this time. Bring a picture ID and show it at the pantry door. A volunteer will confirm your family size. Your pantry items will be prepared and brought to the end of the handicap ramp. At that time, please load your pantry into your vehicle and return the cart to the end of the ramp.

Lakeshore CAP’s Door County Food Pantry is a non-sectarian, not-for-profit program that provides on-going and emergency healthy food assistance to low and limited income residents.

The pantry, located at 131 S Third Ave in Sturgeon Bay, is open between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM every Tuesday and Thursday. Food may be picked up once a month — or more often in emergency situations. Proof of Door County residency is required in the form of a recent utility bill or rent receipt which includes the applicant’s name and current address. A Wisconsin ID is required each time you pick up food. (Additional requirements apply.)
