The Food Basket’s Guiding Values

We are a Christ-centered 501c(3) non-profit offering food assistance at no cost to qualified residents in the Onalaska, Holmen, French Island, West Salem, Trempealeau, Galesville, Melrose, and Mindoro communities. Thanks to the generous donations of time, food, and money from community members, we provide food for hundreds of people each month.


  • We are committed to providing quality, healthy food in the most cost-effective manner.
  • We bring our full resources to bear on the problem of hunger and collaborate with other agencies to best serve our clients.
  • We will be well managed, sustainable, and a good steward of resources.
  • We honor and appreciate the contributions of our donors and volunteers.


As Christ had compassion for those in need, we strive to do the same. We recognize that people can be in need for many different reasons, often times through circumstances beyond their control. We honor our clients’ dignity by being respectful and by helping them with a servant’s heart in a caring and sensitive manner. We value and protect our clients’ privacy and ensure strict confidentiality.
