Waukesha County Food Pantries

I’ve compiled a list of food pantries in Waukesha County that I could find online.  I hope to eventually include more information about all the food pantries.  If you have information such as how often you are allowed to visit these, or what kinds of things they hand out etc. I would love to hear from you so I can make this post even better.

Most food pantries require social security card for all household members, drivers license, paychecks or letter from SSI/SSDI (income proof), possibly recent tax returns at some, and a recent piece of mail like a phone bill or electric bill, to verify address to show the first time you stop for food.   They sometimes will ask for updated information about once a year or so maybe.  If you show up and you need more verification than what you have with you, most are nice and will let you get food that day but request next time you bring other things they request 🙂 I am saying this from personal experience.
