Food Pantry of Waukesha County Fund

The Waukesha FOOD Pantry provides food to Waukesha County residents in need and did so without interruptions in service during the Covid-19 pandemic. With modifications in place to provide a safe environment for all, Pantry staff and volunteers were able to continue services for thousands of clients every month.

A new initiative for the Pantry is the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) which provides nutritious meals to children age 18 or younger during the summer months.

Many children in Waukesha County rely on the free/reduced meal programs at their schools and once school is out for the summer, their families struggle to make their food budgets stretch to accommodate the extra meals. The FOOD Pantry is partnering with Milwaukee Center for Independence (MCFI) to provide pantry boxes that have seven days of breakfast and lunch for each child.
