A huge thank you to all the volunteers that help out at Ruby’s Pantry. We serve an average of 220 clients and distribute over 28,000 pounds of food. GOD IS GOOD!!! This could NEVER be done without the willingness and support from all the area churches and community members. Lots of confirmation youth and their mentors participated in “shopper assistance.” Ruby's Pantry is always the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Osseo UCC. from 4:30-6:00 PM. We can ALWAYS use more volunteers from 2:30 to 8:00 PM. Come for a while or come the whole time. We always have great food and fellowship. And don’t forget to buy your “share” of the food for $20. There are no income requirements and the more food shares that are sold the better it is for the program.
Any questions, call Osseo UCC at 715-597-3292.

We are open the third Saturday of each month from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. We have food and we want to help.
