Capacity-Building Toolkit

At Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, we want to provide our members with the knowledge and tools needed to help increase and improve the services provided to their communities. This capacity-building toolkit contains guides and sample documents on topics related to key operating areas for nonprofits. These tools are designed to help you obtain or improve the skills, knowledge, equipment and other resources needed to improve the service provided to your clients or increase your capacity to serve.

Food Safety & Handling

Food safety is an essential foundation of our work. It is our commitment to establish and maintain standards that ensure we provide clients with safe food. These resources will help you to develop food safety policies, programs, documentation and best practices.


Fundraising helps nonprofits achieve their missions by strengthening and growing their programs. Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is committed to helping members grow and succeed. Here you can find articles and tips on successful fundraising strategies.


Do clients and community members know where you are or how to reach you? Utilize marketing and digital tools to be visible to clients.

Client Services

Client needs are rapidly changing and our commitment to helping our members meet those needs will continue to be the foundation of the work we do. This focus area provides educational resources on client health and nutrition, SNAP and best practices.


Volunteers are essential to many nonprofits, but finding them can sometimes be a challenge. Use the information below to assist with recruiting and retaining volunteers.
