About Us

The FOOD Pantry Serving Waukesha County is a nonprofit community organization dedicated to providing food to the many Waukesha County residents who go hungry every day and eventually eliminating hunger from the county.

Our History

We started humbly in 1978 in the basement of a volunteer’s home, but we now serve over 5,700 residents a month and foster compassion and hope throughout the community. Waukesha is Wisconsin’s third most populated county, and the number is only growing, meaning we receive new clients every day. In addition to food, we provide goods and services, and we work with clients to make them more self-sufficient. Our clients are mostly children, underemployed individuals who are not making a living wage, senior citizens, and people who have fallen under tough times. We work to improve their conditions and the well being of our community, one person at a time.

Our Mission

The FOOD Pantry Serving Waukesha County provides food, hope, and dignity to county residents in need, and advocates to increase awareness of hunger through community partnerships.

Our Vision 

We envision a future without hunger in Waukesha County.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
