Our Emergency Food System is Strong Thanks to Second Harvest & CAC
by Charles McLimans
In response to COVID-19, several food banks, food pantries, meal sites and shelters have come together to strengthen Dane County’s emergency food system.
In fact, the following hunger-relief organizations are communicating closer than ever before to develop collaborative solutions that meet the increased demand for free food and supplies: Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, the Community Action Coalition (CAC), Badger Prairie Needs Network, The River Food Pantry, Middleton Outreach Ministry, Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry, St. Vincent de Paul, and Food for Thought Initiative.
We believe Second Harvest and CAC deserve special recognition for their outstanding efforts to keep our hunger-relief network supplied throughout this crisis. Second Harvest and CAC have shown tremendous solidarity and collaboration. We are also grateful to the United Way’s 2-1-1 system for directing people in need to local resources. By working together, Dane County’s emergency food system will stay strong for the duration of the coronavirus and beyond.
In solidarity and health,
The River Food Pantry, Middleton Outreach Ministry, Badger Prairie Needs Network, St. Vincent de Paul, Food for Thought Initiative, and Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry
