Pantry Details, hours, photos, information: Personal Essentials Pantry
Beginning in September 2010, under one-year funding from the Madison Community Foundation, the Personal Essentials Pantry and other area agencies have begun the PEPartnership. The PEPartnership understands how important personal and household hygiene products are, and is working to make these products more visible as necessities to the community at large and to policy makers, and to improve their availability to people in need. We're particularly interested in making these products available on a more reliable basis so that that people in poverty can better plan their budget and expenditures to make best use of the resources they have available.
All of the PEPartnership agencies provide products for personal and household hygiene. Guests invited to use any of the PEPartnership agencies (though guests should check each agency's website for full eligibility requirements, if any).
Products are distributed based on household composition and product lifespan across all PEPartnership agencies; see Product Definitions & Rules for more detailed information.
Each time a guest shops at a PEPartnership agency, they receive a shopping list of all available products that they are eligible to request at that visit. That means that guests can shop at any or all of the PEPartnership agencies to get the products they need, without having to answer a series of questions each time -- but it also ensures that no agency is double-filling a need.
Over time, we hope to have PEPartnership agencies across Madison and into greater Dane County, and greatly expanded products available at all PEPartnership agencies.
Information on using the PEPartnership can be found in the guest brochure, in English or in Spanish.
If you'd like to become a sponsor of the PEPartnership, please download the Sponsor brochure; sponsor donations are shared proportionately across all agencies in the PEPartnership.
