About St. Stephen's Food Pantry

Since 1978, this pantry has provided food for thousands of families throughout Monona and the greater Madison area.  St. Stephen’s offers a ‘choice’ pantry, which means that clients do their own shopping, selecting only the items they will use. We believe giving people choice honors our clients’ dignity and eliminates the waste of unused items.

COVID-19 Update: During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the St. Stephen’s Food Pantry is open for PICKUP by reservation only, M-TH, 11:30-1pm. Call 608.441.1123 to make your appointment, M-TH from 8 until 10 am.
