Christ Lutheran Church has sponsored the
Arcadia Food Pantry for Trempealeau County since it
began about 30 years ago.
The Arcadia Food Pantry is working with Western
Dairyland Community Action Agency to help individuals,
families, and seniors in Trempealeau County meet their
food needs through the assistance of The Emergency Food
Assistance Program (TEFAP).
One member per household may apply and will be asked to
declare gross income for all household members. Current
(2015) income guidelines for eligibility to participate
in the food distribution program are:
||Total Monthly Household Income Limit
||Combined Annual Household Income
|For households with
more than 10 people, add $7696 per
additional person annually
Identification showing your current
address that includes the street or fire number is
required. This could be a current utility bill, driverís
license, MA card, rent receipt, credit card, etc. You
will be asked to give the names and birth dates of
everyone living in your household. Homebound individuals
and others who cannot come to the food pantry because of
illness, work, etc., may arrange for someone else to
pick up food for them by sending along a signed note
giving permission to pick up the food.
Rules for acceptance and participation in the program
are the same for everyone without regard to race, color,
religion, national origin, age, sex or disability.
The pantry is completely staffed by unpaid volunteers
from Christ Lutheran and Holy Family Catholic Churches
of Arcadia. The people and businesses of our area are
very generous in their support of the Arcadia Food
Pantry for Trempealeau County enabling us to help
approximately 150 households every month.
