The kids are all right!

The kids are all right!

We’ve noticed a hopeful trend we wanted to share: groups of kids and teens collecting food to help make sure more people have enough nutritious food to eat. 

Food drives have real results. They help us distribute the equivalent of more than 100,000 meals a month to the thousands of people who access our pantry. That’s a lot of family dinners! The kids who came together to do these drives showed us what we can do together to create a community where everyone has the stability to thrive. The groups of kids, ranging from preschool to high school, who organized food drives recently include:

  • Boy Scouts of America Troops 40, 87 and 140 (pictured above)
  • Elm Lawn Elementary School in Middleton
  • Future Business Leaders of America at Vel Phillips Memorial High School
  • Girl Scout Troops 7756 and 8021
  • Madison Community Montessori School
  • Middleton High School Band & Orchestra Boosters
  • Middleton High School Boys Swim & Dive teams (pictured above)
  • Park Elementary School in Cross Plains
  • Primrose School of Middleton (pictured above and at top)
  • Sauk Trail Elementary School in Middleton
  • Wisconsin Dive Club
