The Marathon County Hunger Coalition works to eliminate food insecurity within our community by taking fresh, healthy produce directly to families in need.

The Marathon County Hunger Coalition provides food to 8-12 local food pantries throughout the county.  They purchase food through the Bulk Buy and Farm to Family Produce Program to ensure resources are in the community.  This coalition is volunteer-run and meets regularly to stay informed on the needs in our community.  To learn more, please contact Ben Lee at 

The annual Turkey Trot takes place on Thanksgiving morning from Wausau's downtown.  This is the largest fundraiser for the coalition.  In 2023 there were more than 1,900 runners who raised more than $72,100 for the cause. 

The Housing Taskforce is volunteer-run and committed to affordable housing options in Marathon County.  To learn more about the work of the taskforce click here or contact Ben Lee at
