Support and preserve our local economy
Since COVID-19 reached the U.S., we have heard the term “uncertainty” a lot.
For so many Wisconsin residents and families, uncertainty has been a part of their lives long before the virus hit, and it will remain long after the virus is gone.
In 2020, during this pandemic, this uncertainty is expected to grow by 61% with children being the most impacted of knowing when, or if, they are going to get their next meal.
Accessible and efficient doorstep delivery for every community that is available to all, connecting business, people and families, helping drive local economies at a global scale.
Our MissionForward 4 Families exists to provide safe, resilient, and scalable access to food and other essentials, for and by the community.
We are building a simplified local supply chain resulting in safe doorstep delivery for the rapidly growing number of food insecure families.
Through our efforts we will:
＋ Simplify and align the food supply
＋ Distribute meals & food to everyone, in every neighborhood
＋ Keep people in their homes
＋ Bring essentials into neighborhoods and to doorsteps
＋ Make access to food easy, inclusive, and affordable
We continue to work with community partners and local businesses to provide deliveries.
Food banks are incredibly good at getting food to the front lines of the emergency food system, but we face barriers in finding efficient ways to get food directly to the homes of people facing hunger.
This new 'final mile' service model that Forward4Families (F4F) has developed has great potential to help us meet the needs of thousands of people who don’t currently access opportunities for food support because of transportation, health barriers, work, or school hours.
The no-contact way F4F delivers food will reduce the need for vulnerable populations to go out in public, help maintain adherence to social distancing guidelines, and ultimately make our community safer.
We’re excited to join F4F in their efforts to keep our communities safe and hunger-free.

Our 12-month goal is to deliver 350,000 meals to Wisconsin families. Our long-term goal is to build a system and model that can be used in any community.
Every donation helps us grow and support delivery of essentials to those in need.
Since we started in the spring of 2020, we've delivered the equivalent of over 25,000 meals.
Help us reach our goal and meet the growing need.
Help us bring food to those families doorsteps and keep them safe.
