A strong network of dedicated and innovative community partnerships is what's needed to end hunger in southwestern Wisconsin. We are providing our partners with access to the tools, training, and resources needed to serve people facing hunger in our community with compassion and hope. Together, we can end hunger.
Our partners include emergency food pantries, senior meal sites, mobile pantry sponsors, residential programs, soup kitchens, school pantries and children's nutrition programs.
