On the third Tuesday of each month, the Rhinelander Pop-Up Pantry happens at the National Guard Armory (1136 Adams Way/Military Road) in Rhinelander.
Pantry hours are from 5 – 6:30 p.m. (or until the food is gone). Please do not come before 3:30 p.m. – you will just have a longer wait for your food.
You receive an abundance of grocery items, so please bring two laundry baskets or large boxes for food – all for a $20 cash donation. All of the food received is donated by retailers and producers – the cash donation helps transport the food on the day of the pantry. Ruby’s Pantry is a faith-based food distribution – no government funding is received at a local or ministry level.
Online pre-registration is available at www.rubyspantry.org. This opens the day after the distribution and closes the night before the next distribution. Online pre-registration costs $21 and puts you into a 10 minute window to reduce waiting time. There is a limit to the number of food shares in each time slot. You do not have to pre-register – regular registration is always available the day of the pop-up pantry. We do not take pre-registration over the phone.
