School Pantry Program increases access to healthy food

Through our School Pantry Program, we are working with schools across eastern Wisconsin to help alleviate child hunger by making it easy for families facing hunger to access healthy, nutritious food at their child(ren)’s school.

In many communities, the school is the hub of activity and resource center for families. Because of the close relationship between students and faculty, school personnel frequently become aware of challenges within the family while dealing with student issues. A school pantry becomes a safe, supportive way to help students and their families through a crisis, which in turn helps the child become more successful in school.
