We ask that all individuals wishing to use the Food Pantry wait in cars, or outside and a volunteer will provide direction as to service. Our monthly donation focus for September will be canned protein: chicken, tuna, turkey, ham. The following is a testimonial from an individual helped by the Antigo Community Food Pantry recently: “One of my daughter’s children just moved in with me and I live on a fixed income, so the food pantry helps us make ends meet.”
