Beginning in 1983, the Bloomer/New Auburn Food Pantry has served those in need of help in obtaining adequate food for their family members. This service to our community and surrounding area has grown, both in numbers of families served and awareness that there are other areas where we can serve our members.
The food pantry is an equal opportunity employer.
