Stretching Your Food Budget

McFarland Food Pantry

Need a way to make your food dollars stretch? Residents in the McFarland School district who meet the income guidelines are eligible to use the food pantry. It's located at 5404 Anthony Street and is open on Mondays from 3 to 6 pm. If you don't already use the pantry and have hesitations, we would be happy to talk to you about it. We have the registration forms in the Outreach office.

Senior Meal Site / Meals on Wheels

Another way is to participate in our Senior meal site or Meals on Wheels program. There are no income guidelines for participation. To participate in our meal program on a donation basis, you must be over the age of 60. To receive Meals on Wheels, an in-home assessment is required. Some people try the program before signing up regularly.

If you think you might be interested in either our meal site or meals on wheels, please contact one of the case managers at 608-838-7117 to discuss. Transportation to the meal site is also available by request.

Shared Table

Shared Table takes place on Thursday evenings at McFarland Lutheran Church, located at 5529 Marsh Road. The Church and various community sponsors hold a Shared Table meal starting at 5 pm. There is no age or income guideline to participate.

This is not affiliated with Senior Outreach. It is a community sponsored event that is considered a time for fellowship. On December 8th, the Village of McFarland employees along with the youth center will be sponsoring the meal. No reservations are required.
