Welcome to Ken's Picnic!
Our organization is named in
memory of Kenneth Jacobs, a longtime Wisconsin resident. Our goal is to generate food
donations for area food pantry organizations, including
gluten-free items for those with special needs, and fresh
produce grown locally in community gardens.
addition to sponsoring food drives, Ken's Picnic also coordinates with
the "Plant A Row For The Hungry" program, through which area gardeners
donate a row or multiple rows of produce from their own gardens to
their local food pantry organizations.
are already making plans for the upcoming growing season, which we
hope will be the biggest and best ever, and many area gardeners have
already expressed an
interest in contributing fruits and vegetables. Additional
volunteers and contributions are always welcome.
HELPING OUR ANIMAL
these difficult economic times, our animal friends need our support as
well. Many rescues and low-income families are in need of food and
other supplies for the dogs and cats they care for, and we are hoping
to facilitate donations of such items throughout the year. Please check
with your local food pantry or rescue, as many such organizations are
now collecting donations of pet food.
HOST A COMMUNITY
"Lend a paw for those in need!"
This is an easy,
highly effective event that anyone can host! Reserve a free space at
your local park or community building and urge attendees to bring the
· 1 cat food item (canned food or dry food)
· 1 dog food item (canned or dry food)
· 1 food item for the food pantry (canned soup, canned fruit,
canned vegetables, etc.)
· Also bring a snack for yourself, as these picnics are typically done as brown-bag events.
The goal for this event is not
only to generate donations of food items, but also raise public awareness about the needs of hungry people
and their companion animals during these trying economic times.
These events are always a fun, rewarding experience for
