    Waunakee Feed The Need is a local Waunakee, WI. nonprofit group whose mission is to provide nutritious meals to the hungry both here and around the world. In 2016 we packaged both the fortified Rice-Soy Protein Meal and the nutritious Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal. 100,000 meals of oatmeal were distributed free to local food pantries by the Dane Co. Community Action Coalition.  The 176,472 rice-soy meals are being sent to Haiti and Honduras to help feed hungry children and their families.

    At our annual event, assembly lines of volunteers package the nutritious meals. Each package provides six meals at cost of .15 cents/meal.  We are a 100% volunteer group and all donations go towards the cost of the ingredients.  Donations are needed so we can continue providing meals to those in need.
    Waunakee Feed The Need (waunakeefeedtheneed.org)  is an affiliate of the non-profit group; Feeding Children of Stewart/FCS  (foodforkidz.org)
    $25.00 pays for 167 meals
    $100.00 pays for 667 meals
    $250.00 pays for 1,667 meals
    $1000.00 pays for 6,668 meals

    We will be packaging both the Fortified Rice-Soy Protein Meal and a Fortified Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal. The Oatmeal will be distributed free to local food pantries by the Dane Co. Community Action Coalition and the Rice-Soy will be sent overseas to help feed hungry families. The meals cost only .15 cents each, but $37,500​ needs to be raised to cover the cost of the ingredients. Please donate and volunteer to help us reach our goal!
