Iron County Mobile Food Pantry

The partnership between Extension Iron County, Iron County Human Services, community volunteers and Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank make the Iron County Mobile Food Pantry a very successful program. Together, they address the needs of Iron County residents and work towards building a community where healthy, nutritious foods are available to everyone, even when times are tough.

Mobile Food Pantry partners take pride in their work and are there, rain, shine or snow on the last Monday of the month from 12:00-1:00 pm (excluding December and May, at which time the mobile food pantry is one week earlier due to the holidays). Pick up is simple. Participants receive their food as they drive through the Iron County Recycling Center parking lot in Hurley, without ever having to leave their vehicle.

Registration can easily be done over the phone by calling the Extension Iron County office at 715-561-2695 OR by completing the registration form linked below. Completed forms can be dropped off or mailed to the Extension Iron County office (300 Taconite Street, Suite 118, Hurley WI 54534) or emailed to rebecca.holm@wisc.edu.
