Ruby’s Pantry Program Serves 200 Families A Month In FDL Area


Recently the Fond du Lac City Council recognized the Ruby’s Pantry program run by Grace Christian Church in Fond du Lac. The program originated out of the kitchen of Ruby Flodin in Siren, Wisconsin and took off when the IRS gave 501C3 non-profit status to the program in 2003. The local program has been going for three years. Associate Pastor Mary Schabel says it’s an avenue for people who need help to get it and still maintain their dignity. People give $15 and in return get a box of food, but Schabel says they aren’t paying for the food, but for Ruby’s Pantry operational costs with $3 remaining in the local community. Schabel says the Fond du Lac program serves people from all over the area the second Thursday of each month at the church. Pastor Paul Pfeffer says grocery stores and farmers donate food for the program. The next distribution is on Thursday, September 12th at the church at the corner of 4th Street and County Highway K. Registration begins at 5 p.m. and the distribution is at 6 p.m.
