Feed the Body, Feed the Soul

Oshkosh Corporation is committed to help fight poverty. That starts right at home. One out of five children in Northeast Wisconsin go to bed hungry each night and thanks to help from team members and community members, we’re working together to drive change.  Started in Northeast Wisconsin, Feed the Body, Feed the Soul brings together nearly 1,000 volunteers to pack food staples for those in need, while feeding the soul with live music.

“This rice is a staple at our pantry. This will help feed the 200 families that come in once a month. Thank you so much.”

“Providing short-term intervention like food assistance helps avert crises for financially unstable households.”

“‘An Army of volunteers’ working together. Spectacular!”

Packing food, feeding families

Since its inception, more than 600,000 pounds of food have been packed and almost 3,000 Oshkosh team members and community members have given their time and talent to make it happen. Each year, these nutritious food staples help feed families in Northeast Wisconsin. Enough food to help feed many families for up to a year.

As Feed the Body, Feed the Soul continues to grow it will be replicated in other areas where our team members live and work. More than just volunteering, Feed the Body, Feed the Soul is a fun way to give back to those in need.
