What's New in Brown County:

Food Insecurity, Barriers, and Possible Solutions:

Interviews with food pantry patrons have provided insight into the barriers, strategies and solutions for improving food security. This study has taken place every 5 years and provides perspectives on trends that the community can engage to improve health outcomes associated with food insecurity.

Beyond Health: Healthy Food Pantry Initiatives
Are you or your organization interested in supporting any of the 24 food pantries in Brown County?
The Food Drive 5 Toolkit explains why donating nutritious foods can make a difference to local residents, and includes a complete marketing and social media package for food drives. These tools show you how to make a healthy donation, whether through an individual purchase or an organized drive. When we come together to help our neighbors, we can make Brown County a healthy and thriving community!

Although reported food security among Brown County food pantry patrons appears to be decreasing, the demand at local food pantries, food banks, and soup kitchens is increasing. A Food Pantry Sustainability Report was prepared for the Brown County Beyond Health Food Access Workgroup based on a UW-Green Bay Nutrition Students Literature Review. The purpose of the literature review was to investigate strategies utilized in other communities to address related issues.
