NWTC to make a difference with food insecurity

Friday November 22, 2019
Food, shelter, family, job and College it is all connected. In order for College students to focus on learning, they need reliable food and housing. In 2018, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) took part in the Real College survey which found 48-percent of student respondents (540 students responded of 7,860 surveyed) said they were food insecure in the last 30 days. The College has been answering that need since 2014 with the NWTC Shared Harvest Food Pantry where students receive one bag of groceries per week. In the last year, 1,120 bags of groceries were handed out to 317 students.IMG_3781.JPG
On Friday October 25, NWTC faculty and staff  donated food to the panty on Make a Difference Day. Volunteers packed food for Rise Against Hunger, which sends prepacked nutrient-rich meals to those in need. In order to volunteer at the food packing event, each staff member donated food to NWTC Shared Harvest Food Pantry. Green Bay Packer alum Tony Fisher was also on hand collecting food donations from NWTC staff. The event is sponsored by NWTC and the Green Bay Packers. IMG_3780.JPG
