From the website, "We’ve come a long way since those early days. Today, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is the leading hunger relief organization in the state, operating food banks in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley.
Together, with a network of about 600 member organizations, we provide food to nearly 400,000 people each year.
Our mission has also expanded. Improving access to healthy and nutritious food for those facing hunger remains the foundation of our work. Truly solving hunger, though, requires us to dig deeper. It takes all of us working together as a community to define and solve the root causes of hunger – and we’re doing just that.
We are proud members of Feeding America, a national network of more than 200 food banks across the country, and the largest domestic hunger-relief agency here in the United States."
Ron Vinger shared, “Feeding America has been distributing USDA materials which had been purchased during the COVID -19 quarantine from the oversupply of farmers, meat, and fruit/vegetable producers. Feeding America was acting as the area’s distribution facilitators for the USDA. Bethany Church and Appleton volunteers worked together to help meet this need by loading cars with food on a Wednesday in early June. A volunteer ascertained how many boxes (food for 4 for a week) they required up to a maximum of seven. That number was passed on to volunteers who then loaded into them into their vehicles. In the two hour distribution window (10AM – noon), 572 vehicles were loaded with 2200 boxes weighing 29.3 pounds apiece. God is good all the time.” Thank you to Ron Vinger, Randy Griswold, Jim Gane, and others who have cared for God’s people.
