Food Bank Ending Hunger in West Central Wisconsin
Hunger is a solvable problem. Our country has enough food to feed everyone in need. According to a report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council in summer 2012, up to 40% of food in the United States is not eaten. That’s over 74 billion pounds of food annually! Wisconsin mirrored the national average in 2012.
Since 1982 Feed My People Food Bank has been concerned with hunger, rescuing food before it is wasted and distributing it to people who need it most. 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.
