Who’s Hungry?

In a state rich in farmland, it’s hard to imagine that hunger lives in Wisconsin. Yet, nearly 700,000 people in the Badger State do not know where their next meal is coming from. Hunger does not discriminate; it knows no age, race or sex. People facing hunger live in our cities, in our suburbs and in our rural areas. Many have homes, jobs and families. They are your neighbors. Meet them.

Children and Seniors Are Our Most Vulnerable

Children and seniors are our most vulnerable citizens. A child who lacks proper nutrition cannot develop physically, mentally or emotionally. This has a ripple effect that carries into adulthood, harming an individual’s career success and overall health.

Hunger among seniors is expected to increase by 50% by 2025. Limited incomes force many seniors to choose between paying for medications or health care and buying food. That’s an impossible choice at a time of life when both are essential.
