Hayward Community Food Shelf (HCFS) is a non-discriminatory organization dedicated to reducing hunger in Sawyer County.

Established by a small group of concerned citizens in 1985, the Hayward Community Food Shelf’s mission is “to provide food for those in need in an efficient, compassionate, and non-judgmental manner.” Since its creation, the need in our area has continued to increase. We now provide food assistance to approximately 350 families (900 individuals) each month. Annually, a total of just under 900 different families (2250 individuals) seek food assistance from HCFS.

HFCS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt organization. Our purpose is funded solely by donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations. No government funds are received. No volunteers receive any financial compensation for their efforts or contributions. All food and monetary donations are used to provide food to those in need in Sawyer County, Wisconsin and neighboring communities.
