After 27 years of providing low-cost food to people in four states, the Milwaukee-based nonprofit SHARE is closing after its May deliveries.

Another reason people may not be using the service so much anymore is that many people work during the available pick-up times. Pick up times are limited and typically on one day a week. If one is scheduled to work the pick-up day, it’s not possible to use the service. I personally really liked the service, especially the wonderful deals on organic foods. However, I work on the pickup day, so I had to stop using the service.

For me the pickup day (Saturday in Superior) is much more convenient than trying to get to Ruby’s Pantry on a weekday afternoon. I will really miss this program. The food savings allowed my children to participate in extra-curricular activites that I will now have to trim from our family’s budget.

Daniella- It sounds like there are several other resources that offer the same discounted food program, even the SHARE people interviewed said that other organizations have it covered. Perhaps talk to someone at SHARE to have them refer you to some of these other programs so you can continue using this type of service.
