Poverty levels continue to increase in Fond du Lac County and across the nation. In a slow economy no one is exempt from the negative effects of high unemployment rates, coupled with the rising costs of housing, food, gas, utility bills, clothing and other basic needs.
Fondy Food Pantry offers food assistance to residents of Fond du Lac County. Our volunteers are working to alleviate hunger by reaching out to those in need.
Through collaboration with local services agencies, community organizations, businesses and area congregations, our food pantry is a vital resource for those who find themselves experiencing temporary financial problems.
