FREE Holiday Groceries for Area Families

UPDATE: Thanks to the generosity of so many in the community, we were able to provide Piggly Wiggly gift cards to more than 150 families and delivered groceries for a holiday meal to 25 homebound individuals.

Due to the pandemic, our holiday meal program will operate a bit differently this year. Neighborhood Connection, in partnership with Piggly Wiggly, will provide a $30 gift card to individuals and families so that they can purchase groceries for a holiday meal. We’ll also send along some tips for how to put a great meal together for that amount. The gift cards will be mailed to homes so that they arrive at least a week before Christmas.

We realize that some in our community are homebound or unable to grocery shop due to a health condition or disability. For these individuals and households, we will deliver groceries to make a meal for 4-6 people. As in the past, the meal will include a ham and side dishes. The meals will be delivered on Saturday, December 21st between 10:00 AM and noon. Someone must be home to receive the meal.

The gift card or holiday meal is provided free of charge to anyone within the Waunakee school district or Village/Town of Dane who is experiencing financial insecurity.

To request a gift card or holiday meal, please register online or call us at (608)849-5740. The deadline to register is Friday, December 4th.

If you would like to make a donation to help cover the cost of meals, you can do so online or by mailing your donation to Waunakee Neighborhood Connection, 208 S Century Avenue, Waunakee, WI 53597.
