Helping Kids Focus on School - Not Hunger

"Being a single mother of five, keeping my kids healthy and teaching them to fill up on nutritious food is so important."- Stacy (guest at an Eau Claire Pop-Up Pantry)

Back-to-school time means thousands of kids in our service area are starting a fresh school year, ready to learn and grow. Food is essential to that equation, and too many local kids don't have enough. Project FEED is our youth hunger initiative launched at the beginning of 2023. Already, it has funded new school pantries in rural school districts, sustained special distributions over school breaks and backpack library programs, and increased family food boxes distributed to families enrolled at Head Start sites.

As the new school year begins, fresh outreach to locate and mitigate gaps in food resources in school districts and communities throughout our service area will continue. No child should experience hunger. 

We are grateful to the following organizations for providing grants to help fund and sustain Project FEED:

  • Eau Claire Community Foundation
  • Mayo Clinic Health System
  • Nordson Corporation Foundation
