How to Donate

No donation is too small or too large! Whether it's a can of soup, a few fresh tomatoes from your garden (Feed My People happily accepts produce), or a truckload of food, we will help get it to our neighbors in need. Please note that we cannot accept open or homemade items. All donated meat must have been professionally processed.

Donations may be dropped off weekdays from 8 AM until 5 PM.
For all perishable items and large donations for which you need assistance unloading, preferred drop off times are 9 AM - 4 PM. For prompt service, please contact us before arriving.

"We have been seeing more and more senior citizens needing to come and get food. They tell us that trying to pay for their medication and food is just too much."
- Turtle Lake Food Pantry

"Once the food money runs out our residents start staying away from the fruits and vegetables and they go with the high carb foods because that's what's affordable. Nutritious food is expensive. They tell me that they don't know what they would do without this food pantry."
- Woodsedge Food Pantry

As a food bank, Feed My People relies on donations from food manufacturers, distributors, retailers, farmers, and individual community members. These generous donations made it possible for us to distribute over 7.5 million pounds of food to Wisconsin hunger-relief organizations in 2016!

Food Donations

Feed My People Food Bank gratefully accepts food donations, as well as household and personal products. Donations are sorted, packed into boxes containing a variety of items, then distributed to our partner agencies at no cost.

Food & Fund Drives

Help feed our hungry neighbors and have some fun along the way with a food/fund drive benefiting Feed My People Food Bank. Donating funds allows Feed My People Food Bank to obtain needed food items, all while stretching your dollar. Because of our partnership with Feeding America, we are able to distribute $10 worth of food with every dollar donated.
