MADISON — With the main part of its new home now ready, Dane County’s busiest food pantry moved into its freshly built space and opened there on February 2.

The customer-choice food pantry that has been operated by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at 1309 Culmen St. in the town of Madison closed January 27. Volunteers and staff have since been moving food, shelving, coolers, freezers, carts, and other equipment into the pantry’s new, larger space next door, at 2033 Fish Hatchery Rd.

Phase one done — more to come

St. Vincent de Paul has taken a two-step approach to building its new Food Pantry and Service Center. The charity, which focuses on helping meet the needs of people struggling with poverty, first built the just-completed two-story structure that will house its busy food pantry, other aid programs, client-interview rooms, meeting space, and staff offices.

Next, the society will dismantle the converted auto-radiator repair shop that housed its food pantry and other programs for more than three years and will then build the new pantry’s warehouse and dock space on the old pantry’s site. This second phase of the project is expected to be completed by early May.
