Dodge County Food Pantries Benefit From Alliant Energy Customers

(Beaver Dam) Two Dodge County food pantries were among 153 organizations from both Wisconsin and Iowa to receive donated meals from Alliant Energy. Throughout March and April, Alliant Energy provided three meals to a food pantry for each customer who enrolled in the company’s online account management tool. Over 73,500 meals were donated. Beaver Dam Community Food Pantry and Waupun Food Pantry were among the recipients. Also receiving meals were Fondy Food Pantry, Portage Food Pantry, and Reach Out Lodi. Alliant Energy’s Foundation Executive Director Julie Bauer says they send a huge thank you to their customers for signing up for My Account to help their neighbors and families in need. She says they are living their purpose to serve customers and build strong communities by supporting the hard work of their food pantry partners across their service area. Over 24,500 customers contributed to support local food pantries, resulting in a nearly $25,000 donation from Alliant Energy to local food pantries. Each dollar donated to a food pantry buys approximately three meals.
