Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin launched its third annual Food for the Holidays campaign on November 1, and along with Associated Bank, they are on a million meal mission to provide 1,000,000 meals to people struggling with hunger in eastern Wisconsin.
While many of us spend our holidays around the table enjoying a fulfilling meal with family and friends, there are families struggling to pay their bills and turning to their local pantry for a holiday meal.
As part of the campaign, Associated Bank will host a food drive at its 120 locations across eastern Wisconsin. Nonperishable food items or monetary donations can be made at the teller window.
Last year, generous donations helped Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin provide 1.2 million meals to children, families, seniors and individuals struggling with hunger. With the need for food up 33% in the past two years, more families are forced to choose between paying bills and putting food on the table. Feeding America is here to help with its network of 1,000 hunger relief programs including food pantries, meal programs and shelters who work together to provide meals to those in need.
Help make someone’s holiday brighter with a donation to Feeding America and Associated Bank in their million meal mission this holiday season. For more information visit www.feedingamericawi.org
