In May of 2012, four pantries formerly located in churches were combined to form the Antigo Community Food Pantry. Those church pantries were: Faith United Church of Christ, SS Mary & Hyacinth Catholic, Seventh-Day Adventist and St. John Catholic Church. In February 2015, ACFP partnered with Langlade Hospital and moved into our current facility at 2120 Progress Blvd. In the spring of 2015, Operation Compassion, a Christian-based food pantry in Antigo merged their resources with the Antigo Community Food Pantry allowing a more efficient service to our community.
How We Operate
ACFP is a volunteer-run organization. Operation of the food pantry takes approximately 10,000 volunteer hours annually. Of these volunteers, there is a Steering Committee who oversees the day-to-day operations at the pantry and a board of directors consisting of business people and community members who meet quarterly.
Where Our Food Comes From
Pantry food is obtained through community donations via food drives, as well as private donors, local potato growers and farmers. The Antigo Community Garden and Antigo Farmers’ Market, Inc. contribute in the summer months, with produce donated year-round by the Salvation Army. Bakery is received from Antigo Bakery and Copps Food Center. Other local businesses that donate food on a regular basis are: Walmart, Lakeside, Little Caesar’s, Kwik Trip, The Country Store, Canopy Gardens, and The Neighbors Place. However, the majority of food is purchased through Feeding America at a member’s discount, local grocery stores including Butch’s Super Valu, Copps Food Center, Natural Living, Walmart, Lakeside, and in Wausau at Aldi’s.
