Photo: Food Security Meets Get Out the Vote (2020)

By Steve Ventura

One volunteer readies bags to provide food assistance to low income residents of Madison while another tucks in information about how to register to vote and how to cast an absentee ballot. The Madison West High Area Collaborative is an all volunteer organization “that operates as a food relief program to help address the widespread food insecurities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. School staff [and other volunteers] work directly with families to identify needs and make sure there is enough food and support from our Collaborative for each family each week. All of this is done in partnership with Westminster Presbyterian Church, Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin and United Way of Dane County.”By downloading this image, you agree to use the photo within the context that it was taken.
