Mobile Food Pantry

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul exists for the purpose of helping people in need.

Next Steps

Need Help with Food?

Do monthly bills such as rent, utilities, medical bills or fixing the car have stretched your budget and there’s nothing left to buy food this month. We can help.

If you have questions about pantry hours, please email us at  iac@stvincentmonroe.org or call 608-329-7837 Ext. 228.

The pantry is open 3rd Thursday of each month from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Our centrally located food pantry is a busy place, where friendly volunteers put food in the cars of pantry shoppers in a drive-through process.

Please Note

We provide assistance to eligible residents in the general Monroe and Green County, Wisconsin, area (Green County (WI), the eastern half of Lafayette County (WI), the northern third of Stephenson County (IL), and the far northeast corner of Jo Davies County (IL).
