How it all began.....

Follow us on ----------->

What started out as a way to provide temporary assistance to people who often were choosing between keeping warm and keeping a roof over their heads or putting food on their tables has become what the Hunger Task Force refers to as “a model food pantry”. We are sincerely grateful to everyone who has made this possible through donations of food, household items, money, time, and talents. None of this would have been, or could continue to be possible, without your support.

Ground was broken in February 2002, for our beautiful facility at 325 Eagle Lake Avenue. Overwhelming support from professionals, contractors, groups, organizations, and individuals made it possible to open the doors of our new home on August 1, 2002.

Mukwonago Food Pantry was founded by Dorothy Stanke, Debra Hoppe and Cynthia Eggleston who saw a need in our community and found a way to address it. The doors opened on August 1, 1989 in the basement of Clara Martin’s house on South Rochester Street. We soon outgrew the Martin’s home and moved temporarily to Washington Avenue School. From there we moved to 110 Main, on the village square, where again, ever-growing community support forced us to find a larger “home”. This time the former library building at 219 Grand Avenue would be our last stop before moving into our own building.

Give a helping hand to those in need!
