What is a Pop-Up Pantry ♥

Ruby’s Pantry holds Pop-Up Pantry’s in a number of locations across Minnesota and Wisconsin every month. Ruby’s Pantry is faith-based and is organized and hosted by a group of volunteers from a local church. A Pop-Up Pantry is held either at the church location or at a site easily accessible for guests.

There are no income or resident limits/requirements and you can attend a Pop-Up Pantry at any city/state location.

What to Expect at a Pop-Up Pantry ♥

There is a $20 cash donation per food share at the Pop-Up Pantry location. You can pre-register for some of the Pop-Up Pantry sites using a debit or credit card.

We recommend you bring 2 boxes, baskets or totes with you to the Pop-Up Pantry for your food share distribution.

When you arrive at a Pop-Up Pantry for the first time, you will need to register and sign in.  This registration is simple and requires no documentation – 2019 Guest Registration Form (Please type your information, print, sign and bring with you to the Pop-Up Pantry). After the first time attending, you will not need to register and will simply sign in. You will be provided a number and once your number is called, you will go through the line to receive your food share. 

Some Pop-Up Pantry locations offer pre-registration. You can pre-register for a time slot and arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. The shares designated for a pre-registration are only a portion of the total number of shares available at that location. If pre-registration slots are filled, you can still attend a Pop-Up Pantry location and sign in when you arrive. In the event you pre-register and can not attend, you can send someone to pick up your share or a food certificate will be issued for you to pick up and use at the following month during registration.

 

Ruby’s Pantry Mission: To activate people in being alert to the needs of others and to be proactive in encouraging faith, showing friendship and meeting tangible needs of neighbors, friends and strangers regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.
