We do not discriminate as to income, sex, race or ethnic origin, and strive to provide our clients with healthy food choices throughout the year, including fresh produce during the growing season.

Tosa Community Food Pantry deeply thanks Saint Bernard Congregation for unwavering support over the many years of operation. Without the generous donation of facilities and resources we would not be able to fulfill our mission of feeding those in need in the Wauwatosa area. Thank you, Saint Bernard Congregation! In addition to Saint Bernard, the Tosa Community Food Pantry thanks other local organizations which support our operations with donations of food and/or funding. These organizations include St. Jude the Apostle Parish, Christ King Parish, First Congregational Church, Trinity Episcopal Church, Bethany-Calvary United Methodist Church, the Medical College of Wisconsin, St. Pius X Parish, Wauwatosa Presbyterian Church, Wauwatosa Rotary, and the West Suburban YMCA. Thank you to all of our supporters!

Tosa Community Food Pantry would also like to thank Hunger Task Force. Through our official affiliation, Hunger Task Force provides not only a majority of the food resources we distribute to those in need, but also countless other resources for pantry operations for the food insecure in our community. Thank you, Hunger Task Force!
