Helping our Community
Marshfield Food Pantry has been providing food to our neighbors for over 25 years. The Food Pantry is run by volunteers with
a passion to help out their community. Through the years, the Food Pantry's vision has grown with the help of many volunteers
and organizations within the Marshfield community. The Food pantry is committed to engaging in the fight to
end hunger and help our neighbors in need. Our volunteers treat our neighbors
using the Food Pantry with the dignity and respect they deserve. If you
are a Marshfield resident who is in need or know of a Marshfield family in need, please contact us for more information on
how we can help.

Realities of Hunger
America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in
6 Americans hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to
small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different. Right
now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. We all know and are in contact with people affected by hunger, even
though we may not be aware of it. These are often hard-working adults, children and
seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days. Most of us simply
have no idea. It's time to educate ourselves about the causes of hunger in America.
