Donate Food

Food is a basic human need, but for many people regular meals are not a part of their every day routine. Many of the people who rely on Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin for food are struggling to make ends meet. The food they receive from the food bank can help stretch their food budget for the week.

To ensure that we have enough food to distribute to our 876 hunger relief partner programs, we must maintain a steady supply of food. On average, we distribute 69,000 pounds of food each day and we aim to keep a one to two month supply of food on hand in case of an emergency.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin receives food from many sources including manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, farmers, individuals and food drives. These regular donations ensure that our shelves are stocked year round. Click on the links below to learn how you can provide life-sustaining food to those in need.
