Gov. Evers and DATCP announce $10 million in additional funding for food security in Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Tony Evers, with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), announced two of Wisconsin’s largest hunger relief organizations will receive an additional $10 million to help serve Wisconsinites experiencing food insecurity during the pandemic.
Hunger Task Force and Feeding Wisconsin will each receive $5 million in grant funding. The money will be used to purchase food for distribution, and for food storage and transportation.
This announcement brings the total amount investing in Wisconsin’s agricultural and food industry during the COVID-19 pandemic to $75 million.
Gov. Evers said, “This funding bridges an important gap, not only helping these organizations continue to do their good work, but also helping farmers get their goods to folks across the state and Wisconsin families put food on the table.”
