About This Program

The foundation for our food security programs is our food bank and our coordination of the Dane County Food Pantry Network (DCFPN), the Jefferson County Food Pantry Coalition, and distribution to Waukesha County Food Sites.

We administer and distribute The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) in all three counties. TEFAP is a program of the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provides food for pantry shelves and meal sites. We also coordinate community food drives throughout the year, including the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
