About Us

Pewaukee Interchurch Lay Council/Pewaukee Food Pantry is located at 642 Main Street in the lower level of Gethsemane United Methodist Church.

In 1969, a group of caring churches in Pewaukee joined together to form the Interchurch Lay Council. The council was first formed to assist people in need with rides to doctor appointments, grocery shopping, etc. As that need grew, in 1983, the Pewaukee Food Pantry was established.

We Need Your Help

About 200 families a month are served by the food pantry. Because of the current economic conditions, the number of families needing assistance is growing.

The food pantry is currently struggling to serve the number of families in need. For example, each week we distribute 250-300 cans of soup and vegetables, 50-75 cans of fruit, 50 boxes of cereal, 100 cans of tuna, 50 boxes of pasta, etc.

Each week those supplies NEED to be replenished. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated to help our neighbors in need.

We find that during the extended-summer season – from May through October – is the most difficult time for us to keep food on our shelves. School is out, so demands are up. Families are on vacation, so donations are down drastically.
