More than 40 years ago, a group of visionary Waukesha County residents began what is now known as The FOOD Pantry Serving Waukesha County. Their mission was to ensure that any person in need had access to free food to help reduce the negative impacts of poverty. The mission remains, but the vision has grown and evolved over time on a journey we call from Hunger to Health.
Eliminating or even reducing world hunger is a daunting task. But, for us, tackling the hunger that exists in this county has been a community-centered process and a successful one. We have made consistent improvements in the ways food is provided and also increased the nutritional value and quantity of food we provide to each household we serve. But we still need to do better. And with your help, we can.
Providing a Thanksgiving turkey for every household that the FPWC serves is a tradition that has gone on for many years.
