Ruby's Pantry distribution is a  “drive through” distribution. 

 The next distribution is on Saturday, January 16, 2021  at the

Pitsch Elementary School at 501 17th St South, Wisconsin Rapids. 

(Note: We are at the same place as always. The Boys & Girls Club has moved, but Ruby’s Pantry has not)

  • The distribution will start at 8:30 am and will be drive through ONLY. 
  • We will distribute from 8:30-10:00 or until the food is gone!
  • EXPRESS TRACK ONLINE PAY IS NOW AVAILABLE! Go to   to register for your scheduled pickup.   
  • See map for area where Online Pay vehicles will line up. 
  • Guests who pay cash will enter the parking lot off Pear St. and will be directed where to go once entering the lot. If there is a line of vehicles on the street, please position your vehicle at the end of the line...see map.
  • Please STAY IN YOUR VEHICLES as we practice safe social distancing.
  • No boxes/baskets needed… The food will be pre-boxed, so please leave your boxes/baskets at home.
  • Please make sure the back of your vehicle is cleaned out so volunteers can put your bundles in your vehicle for you. 
  • We ask for a $20 cash donation per bundle of food. If you have a certificate number from a previous purchase, you may present that in place of cash as you come through the line. 
  • Have questions? Email

Thank you for your patience as we work through the pandemic safely and practice social distancing.

Thank you dedicated volunteers! 

We appreciate you! We need you!  We hope we see you in 2021!

Thanks to your help, our “drive through” distribution is going well! We have a large number of bundles (shares) and we couldn't do this without you. You are a phenomenal group of volunteers who have been working very hard these past months. We are always looking for more help  and welcome more volunteers to join us as we serve our guests COVID style... 

Please consider volunteering on Saturday, January 16.

We have guidelines that we ask people to follow. If you are in the "at risk" category, please

consider the risk and then decide if you want to help… we want you safe and healthy!

We are looking for 50+ volunteers. We have a health screening process that we are asking volunteers to go through to keep everyone safe from illness.

Your health is important to us and so is the health of others.

● If you are sick or have any abnormal symptoms on Saturday, January 16 - PLEASE STAY


● If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have a family member who was exposed within the last 14 days - PLEASE STAY HOME!

● We will have PPE and hand sanitizer available for you to use.

● We are asking everyone to follow the state mandate of wearing a mask.

● There will be times due to the nature of the work that you will be working with others and social distancing will be more difficult.

● There are 3 time slots where we are asking people to serve. They are listed below.

● Be ready to work when you arrive and be prepared for a possible health screening as well.

Time slots where volunteers are needed:

● 6:00 – 8:00 am | Unload truck and sort pallets

● 6:30 - 8:00 am | Assemble empty boxes and set up tables with food

● 8:00 – 10:30 am | Distribution process of pre-loading bundles/shares and loading in vehicles
