Christian Food Pantry

The Christian Food Pantry located at 15290 Hwy. 32, Lakewood, is a ministry of area Christian churches.  Contributing congregations include St. John Lutheran, Townsend; St. Mary of the Lakes, Lakewood and its satellite churches in Silver Cliff and Crooked Lake.  Also St. Ambrose, Wabeno; St. Michael's, Suring; St. Michael's Chapel, Mountain; Forest Larger Parish Presbyterian Churches in Lakewood and Wabeno, and Tabor Lutheran, Mountain. We have been serving the community on a regular basis since March of 1999.

Anyone who needs help is welcome to register regardless of income.  A box of non-perishable food items is given to each family.  The number of items depends on family size as does the amount of the perishable food grocery voucher, ranging from $24 - $72 and good at Mikes in Townsend or Super Valu in Lakewood.

Johnsonville sausage is available at each session as well as sundry items including toilet paper and paper towel in our "bonus box" which are in addition to the normal fare. At holiday time there are gifts for the children from our "Heart Tree" at Lakewood Super Valu, and hams, turkeys, and fresh vegetables.  Registration for the Heart Tree gifts is during October and November thru Thanksgiving week.

Donate food stuffs at Saint John Lutheran Church in the Narthex Shopping Cart or contact Scott Wycherley at 715-850-0768.

Our volunteers shelve donated food items and assist with distribution at the open sessions. 

Tuesdays 8 - 9 am is our shelving and get-ready session.  Stop by on Tuesday or Wednesday to learn more about the Food Pantry. Volunteer or use if needed.
