Anonymous donor gives $75K to Feeding America in WI

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- For nearly three decades, an anonymous donor has given to Feeding America in eastern Wisconsin. This year is no different. The same person donated another $75,000, making the grand total more than $2.4 million since 1983.

Bonnie Bellehumeur, president of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, says demand for food is up 21 percent over the last two years so the gift is a blessing.

The food bank says 330,000 people in Wisconsin each year rely on Feeding America's food. It's the largest, private, nonprofit distributor of food in the state.
