  • A single mother in Antigo, working at a minimum wage job, who can't afford to pay her rent and buy food for her kids.
  • An elderly man in Cudahy, whose Social Security income doesn't cover the cost of his life-saving medication and his food.
  • A man in New Berlin, recently laid off, who must choose between paying the electric bill and buying groceries for his family.

What do these people have in common? They all depend on food pantries or meal programs that work with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is a food bank that works with a network of hunger relief partners to distribute more than 18.3 million meals a year to 377,000 people in eastern Wisconsin. We have facilities in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley.
