How People Are Helped
The Food Access and Resources program provides staff support and food distribution assistance to 27 community-based food pantries, 4 shelters and 1 soup kitchen in west central Wisconsin. Each of these outlets provides direct, emergency food assistance to low-income families in their area.
In addition to providing support and coordination to various local outlets, West CAP operates a local food pantry directly from our Food Access and Resources Center located at 823 Main Street, Boyceville. This pantry serves the residents of the Boyceville and Glenwood City Area School Districts, including areas in Connorsville, Wheeler, Wilson, Hersey, Downing, and Emerald. Recipients of the pantry can receive an assortment of canned goods, cereals, meat, frozen foods, fruits, vegetables, and an assortment of personal care items. The food package is designed to meet the family’s nutritional needs for a period of 3-5 days. The West CAP Pantry also partners with area churches, schools, businesses and community members to raise funds for the Pantry, and to provide holiday gift certificates.
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the pantry has taken a number of measures to help keep staff, volunteers, and families safe. All food is now pre-packaged and distributed through curbside pickup between 1 pm and 7 pm on Thursdays. Call 715-418-9551 to schedule an time to pick up food.
If you’re a first-time patron, you will need an ID, proof of address, and proof of all persons residing at your address for the application. After applying, you will be assigned a family ID number for subsequent visits and can visit up to every other week.
