In Need of Food?
Any person living in Sawyer County, Birchwood, Cable, Springbrook or Stone Lake is eligible to receive assistance from HCFS. Each Social Security number must be verified annually by an official Social Security care or other legal document containing the number.
Individuals receive a three-day supply of food. Every attempt is made to provide the ingredients for well-balanced meals. Clients may receive assistance one time each month. Some clients receive assistance only once while others need assistance monthly for many years.
Fifty-one percent (51%) of our clients are adults between the ages of 18 and 59, children make up thirty-one percent (31%) and the remaining eighteen percent (18%) are seniors. Our clients come from a wide variety of situations. Some are disabled, some are working, and some simply cannot find gainful employment in this area. Our average family size is 2.5 individuals.
