After potential Covid exposure, Couleecap Food Pantry will reopen Nov. 30

The Couleecap Food Pantry, located 217 N. Black River St. in Sparta, will have modified hours due to a potential COVID exposure in its building.

The exposure likely occurred on Monday, Nov. 10. The food pantry has been operating a no-contact service so the likelihood of exposure through food pickup on those dates is very low.

Couleecap’s Sparta pantry will reopen Nov. 30 and will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays.

Other food pantries operate in the region and can assist with unmet needs during reduced hours at the Couleecap pantry. The Ecumenical Breadbasket food pantry located at 116 N. Water Street in Sparta is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Tuesday from 5–7 p.m.

People needing food can also access the Cashton Cupboard located at 199 Front St. in Cashton. It is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

The Neighbor for Neighbor Food Pantry in Tomah may also be accessed. It is open Monday from 1–3:30 p.m., the second and fourth Wednesday from 3:30 to 6 p.m., and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
