**Food pantry open normal hours, but closed on Saturdays!
Staff members at the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Madison have been closely monitoring the situation regarding spread of the coronavirus and the COVID-19 illness it causes.
The health and safety of everyone who visits our service center is our primary concern. We are taking precautions necessary to keep our clients, volunteers and staff safe. Despite these circumstances, food scarcity remains a major issue for local households coping with poverty, and we are determined to help meet that need in the safest ways possible. This is a fluid situation, and we will continue to adapt and make changes to our standard operating procedures as needed.

We run one of the largest, busiest food pantries in Dane County. Our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry operates on a customer-choice basis. Using “points” based on your household size, you can shop our pantry like a grocery store for the food you and your family prefer and will eat.
During a pantry shopping trip, you shop for about five days’ worth groceries. We work to keep the pantry well-stocked and try to offer many healthy food choices, including fresh fruits and vegetables, proteins, dairy, canned goods and staples like bread and cereal.
The pantry is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays 10:30 am to 2:30 pm; Thursdays 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm; and Saturdays 9:30 am to 11:30 am (*CLOSED on Saturdays starting April 4th, 2020, due to COVID-19). We’re closed on some, but not all holidays.
