Until the coronavirus is no longer a threat, The Fritz Food Pantry at the Center will distribute food outside in the Ironworks parking lot (149 Waubesa St.) during our regular pantry hours. Both cars and those on foot or bike can be accommodated.​ For the safety of all, masks are required. Need a mask? Ask us and we'll provide one. If arriving via car, stay in your car and line up in the parking lot. A volunteer will ask a few questions and further direct you. If arriving by foot, head to the blue tent outside the gym.

No pre-registration is required. Upon arrival you will complete an order form indicating what food you wish to receive.

Pantry Hours:

  • Tuesday 9:30am – noon
  • Wednesday 6pm – 8pm
  • Thursday 12:30pm – 3pm

The Goodman Community Center offers a variety of programs designed to nourish our community. Our Fritz Food Pantry provides groceries for more than 300 hungry households every week. We are committed to not only alleviating hunger, but also to providing people with healthy foods — fresh, local and organic — as much as we can. We also try to meet special dietary needs for low-sugar, low-salt and gluten-free foods.

The pantry is open three times a week and serves a warm, community meal as customers wait. 

In case of inclement weather

Food pantry, meal delivery and food pantry delivery will be cancelled if the Madison Schools are closed due to snow.

If the Madison Schools are closed as a result of a planned closure, Goodman Community Center will cancel the food pantry and delivery programs if a blizzard, ice or storm warning is issued. Please check our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

Our Food Pantry Coordinator is available to present to community groups, organizations or schools about access to healthy foods, nutirition and volunteer opportunities.
