Colfax County Food Pantry
The Schuyler Food Pantry is located at 1213 Colfax St. (under the viaduct). The pantry is open for drive-thru distribution Wednesdays from 5-7:30pm. Anyone in Colfax County may come and receive food once a month.
Anyone (from anywhere!) can sign up to work shifts at the pantry. Currently, we need volunteers to help pack boxes on Monday afternoons from around 1-4pm and to help us distribute these boxes on Wednesday evenings from 4/4:30-7:30pm. September is St. John’s Lutheran’s month to staff the pantry — volunteers please sign up on this page!
We rely on our awesome volunteers to keep the food pantry running! If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the signup form on this page, or contact the congregation on call for the month you would like to volunteer:
