About Us


To feed the hungry.

  • 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 supplied with food by Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is a food bank. Through our warehouses in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley, we distribute more than 20 million meals a year to more tham 550 pantries, meal programs and other nonprofit agencies that serve 377,000 people in eastern Wisconsin.

Through our Milwaukee distribution center, we provide food to more than 350 nonprofit programs in nine counties. Our Fox Valley branch provides food to nearly 200 nonprofit programs in 27 counties.
