The Gift for a Promising Future!
“Growing up in a family restaurant business, I understand how important food security is to quality of life and I commend the Mukwonago Food Pantry on their hard work and dedication to helping people in their time of need. This new facility will help the Food Pantry continue their important mission of helping people meet their basic needs and thrive in their community.” – Dan Vrakas, Waukesha County Executive.
For the past 24 years, Mukwonago Food Pantry has helped improve the lives of thousands of area residents in need. It is only through the kindness and compassion of our community partners that support us that we are able to accomplish our dreams, our goals, and our future.
Everyone understands the basic need of food, shelter and clothing. It is with unconditional love, hope and your generosity that we aspire to expand services and education opportunities; by opening the Mukwonago Food Pantry Resource Center at 225 Eagle Lake Ave.
To serve the whole person, not just the part that hungers. We welcome these partners and their commitments to help those in need of services and education. Your charitable contribution will support our growth as a community.
“I have been associated with the Mukwonago Food Pantry since its inception 24 years ago. I have always been impressed with the mission to continually meet the ever increasing needs of the community. The director, board and volunteers have been extremely dedicated to the goal of bringing services to the people. This is not just about feeding individuals, but addressing all the needs of the individuals and families to improve their futures. This has meant collaborating with other agencies and expanding services. They will now have the space to allow for more community programming. I applaud the MFPRC for its vision and ongoing determination to expand service, empower people, and to improve the quality of life in Waukesha County. This project will make a difference!" – Cathy Bellovary, Community Leader and Volunteer
