The Greendale Health Department would like to sincerely thank the community for their generosity during our National Public Health Week food drive, as well as the Village Departments and local businesses that volunteered to be food donation sites.

Together, we collected over 330 lbs. of non-perishable food items for local food pantries! We could not have done this without the support of our amazing community. Thank you for furthering our mission of being the Healthiest and Happiest Greendale! 

Greendale residents and surrounding community members who need food assistance are encouraged to call the St. Alphonsus Food Pantry (414) 514-4400. Individuals and families can also call 2-1-1 or visit www.211.org for food and other resources.


Thank you 'Community Convening' participants!
