Nearly 20 percent of children in Dodge County are food insecure, meaning they might not know where their next meal will come from.
We help people of all ages get access to healthy food and find freedom from hunger.
Hunger goes beyond the statistics. While the devastating impact of hunger isn't always obvious, the truth is, real people in the Fremont area are struggling with hunger or food insecurity. We work to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community do not go hungry.
We welcome anyone in need who walks through our doors, including the homeless, people struggling to make ends meet and families who are trying to feed their growing children on a limited budget. We provide these services to feed the hungry in Fremont:
Food Pantry | Monday through Friday from 1:30 - 3:45 p.m.
Our food pantry offers nonperishable staples to hundreds of individuals and families from Fremont and surrounding communities. Visitors to the food pantry are asked to provide a photo ID and proof of residence.
Summer Lunch Program | Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of Fremont
Summer is a particularly challenging time for children and families who struggle with hunger. Because kids aren't eating meals in school as part of the free and reduced lunch program, parents often struggle with increased food costs, in addition to child care costs, that strain the budget.
This is why our summer feeding program is so critically important. We partner with the Presbyterian Church of Fremont and other local agencies to provide lunch five days a week when school is out during summer vacation to any child or teen under age 18. Last year we provided approximately 7,000 lunches, along with more than 900 totes, to sustain kids and their families over summer weekends.
