The Pepin County/Durand Area Food Pantry is open to all those living in the area of the Durand School District which includes parts of Pepin, Buffalo, and Dunn counties. 

Durand, Wisconsin, is nestled in the coulee region located in the western part of the state and is also defined by the Chippewa River that runs through the downtown area.

The food pantry is actually located on the river's southern bank of downtown Durand.  With a picturesque view of the river and woods from our back door, one can only stand in awe of nature's true beauty.  The river runs fast; you can be mesmerized by the currents swirling right then left.  Water fowl are everywhere; multi-colored ducks float the waters edge feeding while eagles soar over head.  Fishermen patiently wait along the shores, and occasionally an air boat cruises by all with one question in mind...

"Are we going to catch any fish today?"

The river provides food for all of nature's creatures that depend on it for their survival.

Speaking of food!

As we turn and enter through the back door of the food pantry our mind takes on a different focus.  The walls are lined with shelves from the floor to the ceiling.  All are loaded with different kinds of food.  One would think you were walking through a grocery store---except there is one item missing---there is no cash register.

The Durand Food Pantry/ "Bread of Life"  has been a functional entity serving our community.

 Like the Chippewa River, the Durand Food Pantry/ "Bread of Life"  provides food to the community.  With the economy in complete disarray, with loss of jobs, and with families being torn apart by the reduction of their incomes, the Food Pantry is experiencing an added demand for service.  

 The Durand Food Pantry is a non-profit organization and is solely dependent upon your financial and food donations. All of your donations are greatly appreciated by everyone involved.

 Cash donations-- We have a few places that we can purchase items wholesale or even at just the cost of delivery.  That helps stretch the dollars that you give to purchase a variety of items for the pantry.

Thank you for your help in meeting people's needs.  A receipt will be issued upon request.
