Donating Groceries

Don't second guess your food donation. If you like it, we probably have a patron that likes it too. As long as the product is within 60 days of its expiration date and unopened, we appreciate the donation! The next time you buy your favorite foods simply buy two - one for you and one for the Food Pantry.

Donating can be easy and fun. Make it a game with your kids. Let each child pick out one thing to donate the next time you are grocery shopping. As you leave, simply leave it in the donation bin on the way out. Buying one can of soup each shopping trip may not seem like much to you, but to a family in need, it's life-giving.

Donating Money

We are sincerely grateful for all donations to our Food Pantry. Without the generosity of our community, we would not be able to offer services to our patrons. The Sauk Prairie Food Pantry is a 501(c)3 tax exempt corporation. All monetary donations are tax-deductible.

Benefits of Giving Money

Giving money allows the Food Pantry more options for helping our families in need.

  • We are able to purchase specific items that are in short supply and may not have been otherwise donated. 
  • Your money goes farther. The Food Pantry is able to purchase groceries at a reduced or bulk rate from various retailers or Second Harvest. 
  • Money doesn't have an expiration date. We are able to allocate funds throughout the year to high-volume times when it can do the most good. 

How to Donate

Checks may be sent directly to Sauk Prairie Food Pantry at PO Box 652, Sauk City, WI 53583. You will receive a written acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes in the mail within 2-3 weeks. 

Online donations can be entered on our website. You may make a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation amount. If you wish to specify a spending category (diaper fund, operations, etc.), please enter that information at the time of your donation.
