Food/Fund Drives, Third-Party Events & Promotions
Donations to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin advance our mission of ending hunger in southwestern Wisconsin through community partnerships. We’re grateful for the support of businesses, schools, congregations, organizations and individuals that hold food/fund drives or raise funds through third-party special events and promotions (not organized by the Foodbank).

With every $1 donated, Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin can provide 3 meals. How? Strong relationships with food industry donors and other avenues to obtain quality, nutritious food at reduced prices. A dollar goes much further in our hands than the common market.

Second Harvest Foodbank won’t discourage you from purchasing groceries at retail prices for a food drive or cleaning out your pantry and donating food that might otherwise go to waste. But we’d like to emphasize that your monetary contribution will go much further in ending hunger.
For every 1.2 pounds of food donated, Second Harvest Foodbank can provide one meal. Check out our list of most needed non-perishable food items and learn how food donors receive protection from liability.
