Nutrition Services

Providing food security in Milwaukee County.

Food: it’s one of our most basic needs. Yet, according to the Wisconsin Food Security Project, 1 in 12 Wisconsin households lack the food they need to thrive.

That’s why SDC’s Nutrition Services team is working in the community and providing an important link to critical resources.

From schools to daycare centers, SDC had an average of 4,000 children enrolled to receive nutrition services in 2020. Additionally, during the height of the pandemic, SDC’s Nutrition Services provided 14,000 individual meals monthly to four hotels for homeless individuals and families in Milwaukee County.

As a Community Action Agency, we provide resources to help people move beyond poverty. Sometimes this means making sure that people have food to eat.

In addition to our Emergency Food Pantry, SDC provides fresh and healthy food options to Milwaukee County residents through local partnerships. Find out how you can get involved in our Summer Food Program or Youth Food Program.
