United Coop donates $26,000 to area Wisconsin food pantries

United Cooperative, based in Beaver Dam, has released $26,000 in monetary funds to 25 different food pantries throughout their south-central and northeast Wisconsin trade territory.

"We've learned from local food pantries that the demand for hunger-relief services is very strong," commented David Cramer, United Cooperative president and chief executive officer. "Our food-pantry contributions are a result of our efforts to have a cooperative that our patron members can rely on, both on their farms and in their local communities. As a cooperative, we want to help build a better world, and that starts right here in southcentral and northeast Wisconsin."

In 2011, Feeding America reports the number of food-insecure Americans continues at 50.1 million people. Feeding America's recent study, Food Banks: Hunger's New Staple, proved that, "emergency food pantries are becoming a regular component of households' long-term strategies to supplement monthly shortfalls in food.

When we give someone food, we give them hope, so that they may focus on school or a better job, and ultimately build a thriving life for themselves and for their children."

Food pantries (19) received donations from United Cooperative. The following are those in our surrounding area:

? City of Waupun Food Pantry

? Columbus/Fall River Food Pantry

? Dodge County Food Pantry in Beaver Dam

? First United Methodist Church Food Pantry, Hartford

? People Against A Violent Environment, Inc. (PAVE), Beaver Dam

? Ripon Community Food Pantry

? Sacred Heart Parish, Horicon
