Every day people in Wisconsin go hungry, and it's not just in the big cities. In 2014, more than 70,000 individuals living in west central Wisconsin relied on food received from programs supplied by Feed My People Food Bank.
About 40% were children. That's 28,000 hungry kids.
Food Bank Ending Hunger in West Central Wisconsin
Hunger is a solvable problem. Roughly 70 billion pounds of edible food is lost in the United States each year (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Economic Forum). Hunger in America is not about supply, it is about redirecting the excess food that is lost each year to those who need it most.
Since 1982, Feed My People Food Bank has been concerned with hunger, rescuing food before it is wasted and distributing it to people in our community who struggle to put food on the table. We are a cost effective way to provide food pantries, community meal sites, and shelters with enough food so that thousands of people can be helped each month.
