Food Drive

May 9, 2020 10:00am - 1:00pm

The Sparta United Methodist Church invites you to bring non-perishable food items to the parking lot for AMKM Gymnastics at the Avenue Events and Venue, 1415 W Wisconsin Street, Sparta WI (formerly Colonial Bowling and Banquet Center) to support the Sparta Ecumenical Food Pantry.

Items especially needed at this time are:

  • Peanut butter
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Tuna or other canned meat
  • Crackers
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Canned chili
  • Spaghettios or Chef Boyardee meals
  • Pork and beans (baked beans)
  • Canned fruit
  • Oatmeal
  • Cereal
  • Hamburger or tuna helper

During the food drive we will be practicing the following guidelines from the Monroe County Health Department:

  • Drop off points will be staggered, making sure that we are staying at least 6 feet apart from each other.
  • As you drive up with your donation, we ask that you remain in your vehicle and pass your items out to our volunteers who will be masked and practicing safe hand hygiene.
  • Donated food items will be quarantined for the appropriate amount of time before they are added to the food pantry shelves.

If you prefer to donate money we will also have cans available that you can drop your money into. If you are writing a check, they should be made out to: Ecumenical Food Pantry.

The Sparta Ecumenical Food Pantry is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. until noon. They are located at 116 N Water Street in downtown Sparta. At this time during the COVID-19 “Safer at Home” initiative, those wanting assistance are not allowed inside but are asked to fill out their list of needs at the door and volunteers will bag up their groceries and bring them out so that everyone’s safety is cared for.
