Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Feed My People food bank is raising funds through its third annual “Operation Picnic” summer hunger campaign to provide food to families facing hunger in west central Wisconsin. Volunteers from the “Operation Picnic” sponsors are taking part in a special pack-a-thon, assembling bags of food to be distributed to those in need.

Those sponsors include Bush’s, Chippewa Valley Growers, and Royal Credit Union. Feed My People food bank is also looking for donations. Every dollar up to 21 thousand dollars will be matched to help reach the goal of 168 thousand meals funded.

“The food being packed here today will be going out to our pop-up food distributions throughout the area. It’s also going to be going to school food pantries and other direct food programs that we have. Working with kids, seniors, and families to help make sure that everyone gets the food they need this summer and beyond.”

The campaign runs through Sunday, July 31st. For more information on how to donate, we have a link on our website.
