Volunteering for Hunger Relief


Eau Claire – Northwestern Bank sponsored The Community Table Kitchen in Eau Claire, Wisconsin for the month of January and the lending team volunteered on January 29th to provide a meal for those struggling with hunger.

The Community Table provides daily meal services to feed people within the Eau Claire Community. They serve one nutritious and balanced meal each day, 365 days a year. The meals are provided in a safe environment to help reduce the hunger crisis in the community. The Community Table also strives to connect those in need with other local resources.

While volunteering, Northwestern Bank’s lending team split up into two shifts to prepare lunch, serve the food, and clean up afterwards. The lunch was healthy and nutritious including an egg bake, salad, and fresh fruit.

“The Community Table brings people together and provides a space for community members struggling with hunger to have a nutritious meal they can rely on. When volunteering there, one can see the impact they are making in people’s lives.” – Jerry Jacobson, president of Northwestern Bank.

Northwestern Bank prioritizes giving back and volunteering through our values shining through service, creating a positive impact, and mission building stronger communities where people matter.

“It feels good to get involved with our community and make a difference in the lives of local people. I have volunteered at the Community Table before and I will do it again because it is an organization that I believe is important to our community.” - Lacey Logslett, VP Business Banking

Northwestern Bank supports hunger relief causes throughout Northwestern Wisconsin by donating to multiple food pantries, the local food bank and volunteering.

At our most recent annual all employee service day, our team made birthday kits for families who struggle to put food on the table. These kits included birthday cake mix, decorations, party hats, and small party favors for families who otherwise might not have been able to celebrate. They were distributed to food pantries in Eau Claire, Chippewa and Clark counties.
