Winnebago County free food banks

Free food pantries in Winnebago and Oshkosh Wisconsin provide needy families with groceries, meals, food, or other items. Most of the locations provide members of the community with items that are usually acquired through local donations, canned food drives, or direct purchase. Below are some of the leading centers to call for help in Winnebago County.

While the specifics of each program and food bank will vary, in general the amount of assistance one receives from a local pantry will in fact depend on the number of people in the household, the applicant’s income, and other criteria. Most of the centers in the Oshkosh area allow individuals to "shop" the local free food pantry and select the groceries as well as other supplies they would like.

Other items available may include clothing, baby products such as formula and diapers, Thanksgiving and Christmas meals and gifts, household products and other items when they are available when in stock. Some of the free food pantries in Winnebago County may also have clothes, provide seasonal items including Christmas toys or Thanksgiving turkeys, and much more.
