Second Harvest Closed During Record Frigid Stretch


UPDATE (1/30/19, 12:33 PM): The rideshare company Lyft is offerering free rides to warming shelters in multiple cities including Madison. For more information check out their blog post.

Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin will be closed on Wednesday, January 30 and Thursday January 31 due to inclement weather. With wind chills expected to be near -60° our fleet of trucks will be unable to make any deliveries or pickups from within our 16-county service territory.

Additionally, we have asked that our staff stay home to help ensure their safety. Those staff members who can work from home will be monitoring the situation and will be available in case of an emergency.

Our mobile food pantries in Highland and Reedsburg that were scheduled for Thursday, January 31 have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled at this time.

Currently deliveries and pickups scheduled for Friday, February 1 will take place as planned.

Anyone who is in immediate need of food on Wednesday or Thursday should contact United Way 2-1-1 (dial 211 on your phone) to find the nearest emergency food resource.
