Our Story

Since 1986, the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin has put more than 100 million meals on the tables of the 1 in 8 who are facing hunger  in southwestern Wisconsin. We work together with hundreds of local hunger-relief charities to provide the peace-of-mind people get when they know they have enough food. 

As a hunger-relief organization, we understand the correlation between poverty and hunger. The struggle is more widespread than most imagine. Despite the millions of meals we’ve been able to provide as a result of our generous donors over the years, there is still a gap between the number of meals we provide and the number of meals needed. In southwestern Wisconsin alone, 1 in 5 children face the hardship of hunger. Here are some facts about hunger in Southern Wisconsin.

Malnutrition in America affects many families. Food banks, local food drives, food shelves, food donations, and food pantries are all resources for those who are hungry. We can beat hunger in the United States  if we all work together!

Hunger Is A Social Problem.  Help Fix It! 

Hunger is an important topic in intercultural communication studies right now. Remember, when you buy your groceries or go out to eat: There are hungry families who cannot afford regular food on a daily basis. The chances are high that someone in your neighborhood is facing hunger. Would you consider donating food to Second Harvest so that your neighbors don't go hungry again?
