"You don't think it's going to be you." Lauren said that as someone whose family once had to use the food pantries, food insecurity can touch anyone at any point.

Freeze the Freezer
We have launched our Freeze the Freezer fundraiser and are asking for your help! We are in immediate need of a larger freezer so that we can store fresh and healthy foods for the 3,000 families that we serve. The total cost, including installation, is about $35,000. Our friends at the Hunger Ball of Sheboygan County are graciously matching donations (up to $10,000). With your help and as we get closer to our $35,000 goal, we will begin to unlock more local *penguin* advocates who are taking a stance against hunger in Sheboygan County on our social media. Donate now to help us make progress on our goal and see who we unlock next! Donations designated for Freeze the Freezer can be mailed in as cash, or a check, to Sheboygan County Food Bank, 3115 N. 21 St. Suite #1, Sheboygan, WI 53083.
