MONROE - The Shopko Foundation recently provided a grant to the Green Cares Food Pantry to purchase food from the Second Harvest Food Bank.

The food pantry, located just outside of Monticello, is the largest food pantry in Green County. It provides food to eligible Green County families once a month. Families receive a variety of canned and fresh foods, as well as frozen meats. Currently the pantry serves approximately 290 families, totaling 900 individuals, each month. Green Cares' day-to-day operations are handled by volunteers; there is no paid staff. The pantry is open three times each week: From 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays, with expanded hours of 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. the first and third Tuesday of each month; from 9 a.m. to noon Thursdays; and from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Saturdays. It also will open for emergency services.

The Shopko Foundation is partnering with local charitable groups like the Green Cares Food Pantry with the goal to end hunger in Green County.
