CFP serves the towns of Lakewood, Townsend, Wabeno, Silver Cliff, Riverview, Mountain, Doty, and Suring.  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.

DURING COVID 19 Crisis, the Pantry will be open to the public every Wednesday 8:30-10 am and 5:30-7 pm, and daily by appointment. We will also deliver to home bound if you give us a call. At the Pantry we  will  be serving with a DRIVE-THRU format.  Customers as they arrive will be given an order menu to fill out.  The order will be prepared inside by volunteers and delivered to the side door.  People who show signs of illness should stay home.  Call the Pantry 715-850-0768 for an alternate plan.  We will do our best to accommodate every family that needs help.

Open sessions are every Wednesday, 8:30 am and 5:30 pm and staying open until all on line are served. 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.
