Second Harvest of Wisconsin changes name

America’s Second Harvest of Wisconsin, the state’s largest food bank, has been renamed Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

New signage reflecting the new name was installed today at the food bank, located at 1700 W. Fond du Lac Ave.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin remains a part of the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization, Feeding America, located in Chicago. Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is one of 200 member Feeding America food banks that works to alleviate hunger across the country.

"The name change to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin quickly and effectively communicates our mission and will have a positive impact on our future ability to engage the community in our hunger relief efforts," said Bonnie Bellehumeur, president of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, which annually provides more than 12 million pounds of food to 235,000 people.
