Can-struction 2018

This Pea-Can Pie was created by Josh Dusterbeck ad Thrivent using 2560 cans of food at the Delavan, WI Piggly Wiggly! The PIE will be on display through Sunday November 25. Thrivent is an active sponsor of the Walworth County Food Pantry and this gift is valued at $3200! Thank you Josh and your Thrivent Team!

New Technology! Better Service!

We are so grateful to The Elkhorn Fund, Pivotol Payments and other private donors for our Technology Upgrade! Also many thanks to all of our guests and volunteers as we learn to use it! We began the new year with a system called Food Bank Manager, a Cloud based tracking system that uses IPads instead of manila folders (we currently have almost 6,000 folders in our file cabinet!). Our guests will now just have to sign on the IPad and be on their way to the Produce/Bread and Bakery room to chose their items before having the rest of their groceries loaded in their cars.
