eFood Pantry: Food Pantry Online Ordering System

The Madison Senior Center is now an online ordering station, and a pick-up location for the River Food Pantry. That means that you can order food through the ePantry, and then pick it up at the MSC instead of driving to the River Food Pantry, which is out by the airport. It also means that if needed, we will assist you with completing an online order. Come in on the 3rd Tuesday, May 16, 9am – 3pm if you want assistance getting signed up, or changing your existing pick-up location to the Madison Senior Center.

Once a month, households have the option to order their groceries online. Based on household size, families select from a variety of healthy and nutritious food. Orders must be picked up on the 3rd Thursday, May19, between 10am and 12pm.

To be eligible to order from the eFood Pantry, you must live in Dane County, and meet income guidelines. To get started you have to fill out a form online, bring in proof of identification (state ID, drivers license, insurance card, etc.) AND proof of residency in Dane County (utility bill, lease agreement, mail, etc.).
