Allison (Madison, WI)

Alison spent ten years as a volunteer for her local Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin food pantry. She loved to help others, but never expected that she would one day need help, too. This is her story.

Paper Plate Project

Paper plates offer an easy, anonymous way for food banks to collect client stories. In this gallery, we present some client paper plate stories on what hunger feels like, why food banks and food pantries are important, clients' favorite fruits and vegetables, and what they would do to end hunger.
