Poverty levels continue to increase in Fond du Lac County and across the nation. Low wages, and rising costs of housing, food, gas, utility bills, clothing and other basic needs affect families who are struggling to make ends meet.
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.
