Optional Participation in:
Wisconsin Dairy Recovery Program: receive weekly orders of milk, cheese and yogurt for distribution in your community. All product comes from local Wisconsin dairy farmers and producers.
Hunger Relief Fund: The Hunger Relief Fund of Wisconsin was created to raise awareness of hunger-related issues in Wisconsin, and to provide hunger relief organizations with a means of accessing workplace-based payroll deduction fundraising campaigns. The Fund also ensures that employees have an option to donate to their local food pantry. No money is used for administrative costs—Hunger Task Force is the administrative agent and donates all administrative costs.
USDA Farmers to Families Food Box Program: connect with a nearby hub or receive boxes of food directly each week. This program will last throughout 2020.
