Feed My People Food Bank in Eau Claire, WI

Everyday people in Wisconsin go hungry and it's not just in the big cities. In west central Wisconsin alone, more than 14,500 individuals each month rely on food received from programs supplied by Feed My People Food Bank for their very next meal. Approximately 39% are children. That's 5,600 hungry children.

For 27 years Feed My People has been concerned with hunger. Feed My People is a cost effective way to provide food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters in west central Wisconsin with enough food so that thousands of people can be helped each month.

According to the 2000 US Census, there are 39,714 people living in the 14 counties we serve that live in poverty and 23,828 of them are children or elderly. Many of these individuals need food assistance from time to time.

As a food bank, Feed My People is a crucial link between food manufacturers, suppliers, and the front-line agencies that provide direct service to the hungry. Our large warehouse, complete with freezer and cooler space, allows for storage of vast quantities of food from which hunger relief agencies can obtain products for distribution. We distribute food to more than 82 agencies in the 14 counties we serve. Feed My People Food Bank is the only food bank in west central Wisconsin.
