St. John is proud to be a distribution site of Ruby’s Pantry in Wisconsin. Ruby’s Pantry is a non-profit organization that gathers food donations from local retailers and brings them to their distribution sites over Minnesota and Wisconsin. For more information on Ruby’s Pantry visit their website.

How it works:

The second Saturday of every month is the food distribution through the ministry: Ruby’s Pantry – St. John site. A joint effort between St. John Lutheran Church, St. Louis Catholic Parish and Ruby’s Pantry which provides food in ways that help stretch food budgets. Registration will take place between 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. and food distribution will begin at 9:00 a.m.  Guests are asked to make a $20 donation to help cover the cost of transportation of the food, and for that they will receive a generous supply of items. There is no residency or income limits or restrictions.

What to Bring:

$20 cash donation. (2) Laundry baskets or boxes *as you will receive an abundance of food.
