Ruby’s Pantry will deliver to another distribution site in the Northwoods.  Lac du Flambeau will host the once-a-month food distribution on second Tuesdays at the Bingo Hall.    

Gloria Cobb is a case worker with the Lac du Flambeau economic support department.  She says many families in the area are feeling the financial strain.

Rhinelander will soon be home to a new food pantry.  Ruby’s Pantry is slated to make a large delivery of surplus and donated food once a month. 

Organizer Chrissy Peterson says she originally had trouble finding the right space to house what could be thousands of pounds of food and hundreds of people.   Eventually she found Grace Foursquare Church on Highway 17.

A new food pantry could be coming to town, if a Rhinelander woman can find the right distribution space.  

WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski sat down with Chrissie Peterson who thinks Ruby’s Pantry would benefit the Northwoods.  

Chrissie Peterson says Ruby’s Pantry would be held one day a month, and would serve working class families.

“The target market that I think Ruby’s pantry is for is those familes less fortunate that live paycheck to paycheck.  With Ruby’s Pantry you pay 15 dollars for roughly 100 dollars worth of food.”
