United Way St. Croix Valley Food Shelter

United Way St. Croix Valley Food Shelter

"Many people in Western Wisconsin are struggling to put food on the table, and food pantries are straining to meet the high level of need. A recent ALICE report found that many households are struggling. Research found that 34% of households in Polk county, 42% of households in Pierce county, and 29% of households in St. Croix county are living in poverty and/or earning less than the basic cost of living for the county.

We fight hunger in our community through our John Coughlin Food & Resource Center (JCFRC), which is located in Hudson and serves as a food distribution warehouse. Since opening in 2008, we have distributed more than 1,100,000 pounds of food and other products at no cost to 12 food pantries and two shelters St. Croix and Pierce counties. In June 2017 we launched a new initiative in Polk county, where we are now providing food to the seven food pantries and three shelters."

We receive no government or United Way funding and rely solely on donations to do our work. Every year, the donations of goods, services, time, and money by thousands of people allow Sharing and Caring Hands to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and children in need.
