Weekend Food For Hungry Kids

There are children in the Dodgeville School District who do not have enough to eat from the time school lets out on Friday until they return on Monday. Studies show that student productivity and learning are adversely affected due to hunger. We want to alleviate this for the children in our communities.


How We Help


The Dodger Food Locker's mission is to help as many of those children as possible by providing weekly food vouchers valid at Dodgeville Piggly Wiggly or the Ridgeway Badger Mart. Families with one elementary age child receive a $25 certificate each Friday during the school year. Families with 2 or more elementary age children receive a $40 certificate.

Since the group started, the number of students served has increased thanks to generous community support from donations and fundraisers. We have been able to add students from the Middle School and High School - and we strive to help all families in need! We appreciate all the support!

Who We Are

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization right in Dodgeville, set up to help feed local kids in need on the weekends. Our group started with a group of concerned members of the Dodgeville Kiwanis who wanted to help!
