MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)-- With the worst of the winter weather ahead, a 3,000-pound drop-off of premium deli meats to the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin in Madison should be a help to those in a state of food insecurity.

Through the Families Helping Families program, all Dietz and Watson meat and cheese purchases at Pick-n-Save and Metro Market helped fund the donation.

Second Harvest began working with local hunger-relief agencies in 1986, helping end hunger in 16 southwestern Wisconsin counties.

NBC15 is a proud sponsor of Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin’s Share Your Holidays campaign. This year the campaign broke a record after raising 4.67 million meals for those in need.
