Profile

For 30 years, Racine County Food Bank (RCFB) has operated an efficient and successful emergency food program. Funding and support of its operation has come from all areas of the Community as well as from the Emergency Food And Shelter Program. Because of great community involvement and efficient staff, the Food Bank supplies the emergency food network in Racine County with more than 90,000 pounds of food each month!

History

Racine County Food Bank was formed early in 1983 and named Racine County Project Emergency and, at first, offered food, shelter, clothing, and items for other emergency needs. Starting with several cases of donated food and a part-time coordinator, the agency has since grown to face the challenges of recessions and Racine plant/company closings.

Currently, RCFB's four staff members, along with hundreds of volunteers, food collection, warehousing and distribution of over 1,000,000 pounds of food each year! The Food Bank serves as Racine County's "United Way of Food" and distributes food, free of charge to food pantries, emergency shelters, community meal sites and social service agencies throughout Racine County.
