UW-Madison teaming up with Second Harvest to fight hunger

It’s one thing to be hungry because you haven’t eaten. It’s another to be hungry because you don’t have anything to eat.

UW-Madison is teaming up with Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin to help those who need it. Helpful Harvest is a three-month pilot program that allows people to choose from available food options online. It’s not just canned non-perishable foods – fruit, vegetables and frozen meat are among the choices.

For the pilot, people shop online in advance and can then pick up the food anonymously from 12:30 to 2 p.m. June 20 at the Union South lobby or the 9th Floor of 333 East Campus Mall (Office of Student Financial Aid).

The deadline to sign up is noon Wednesday, June 19, or when supplies run out. There is a limit of 50 people who can sign up for each location. Anyone can sign up online for food, no questions asked.
