West CAP provides food to low-income individuals and families in need through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).  Food is distributed from our Food Access and Resources Center, located at 823 Main Street, Boyceville.

Who is eligible for West CAP’s Food Pantry?

This pantry serves the residents of the Boyceville and Glenwood City Area School Districts, including areas in Connorsville, Wheeler, Wilson, Hersey, Downing, and Emerald. You are eligible to obtain groceries once per month if your gross household income does not exceed 200% of the poverty level. Check the eligibility income guidelines for more information.

How does it work?

Recipients of the pantry can stop by during distribution hours, which are Thursdays from 1pm-7pm.  Eligible patrons come inside and shop for food items, much like a regular grocery store.  Foods available include an assortment of canned goods, cereals, meat, frozen foods, fruits, vegetables, and a variety of personal care items.

The amount of food available is intended to meet you/your family’s nutritional needs for a period of 3-5 days.  We have volunteers to help answer questions and describe the items available to you.

How to apply?

If you’re a first-time patron, you can come to the pantry during our distribution hours on Thursdays.  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 return visits and can visit up to every other week.

West CAP oversees the distribution of TEFAP foods to 39 additional pantry outlets as well.  Click here for a list of hunger relief agencies across west central Wisconsin and Shelters that provide TEFAP Supplements.
