Sheboygan County Food Bank
2 year commitment
Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.
Sheboygan County Food Bank will receive support from PHA to implement a comprehensive nutrition ranking system over the next two years. PHA will provide technical assistance to help Sheboygan County Food Bank understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.
Sheboygan County Food Bank (SCFB) has a mission to lead Sheboygan County’s efforts to increase the food security of its residents by distributing healthy emergency food and fostering innovative partnerships. SCFB distributes food to food pantries and other partner organizations in Sheboygan County. Partner organizations then directly serve local individuals and families. SCFB does not charge for food, delivery, or partner network membership. Each month, SCFB provides healthy, nutritious, and free food to make sure that over 3,000 families don’t go hungry.
Low-income people are at increased risk for both food insecurity and obesity
