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 (2012-2013) income guidelines for eligibility to participate in the food distribution program are:

Household Size Total Monthly Household Income Limit
1 $1729
2 $2333
3 $2944
4 $3554
5 $4165
6 $4775
7 $5386
8 $5996
For each additional household member over 8 add $611 monthly

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.

The Arcadia Food Pantry for Trempealeau County is open on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 1 until 3 PM. and is located in the lower level of the Mayo Health Clinic, 464 St. Joseph Avenue, Arcadia, WI 54612.
