Chickasaw County Food Pantry

Posted: Mon, June 11, 2012

The Chickasaw County Food Pantry (New Hampton) would like to thank the community for the generous donations they receive.  "Compared to other food pantries, we are very fortunate for all the donations, food & monetary, we receive.  Some communities are not as fortunate," expressed Nancy Wegner, Food Pantry Coordinator.  The food pantry is open on Friday mornings from 8:45 am to 11:45 am.    

As fortunate as the New Hampton Food Pantry is, they are always looking for donations.  There are several items that they can always use.  They include:  sugar, flour, crackers, packaged cookies, coffee, hygiene products, paper products (toilet paper, paper towels & Kleenex), and laundry detergent.  They seem to always have a need for these products.  The food pantry also has 3 freezers so they do accept meat product such as 1 lb packages of hamburger & hot dogs.  

Of course monetary donations are always welcome as well.  We ask that you remember the food pantry when donating in 2012.  To donate, you can drop stuff off on Friday mornings during the time they are open, or donation items can be dropped off at our office and we will get them to the food pantry.
