Our Story

Started on March 13, 2020, when COVID hit our communities.

Anticipating a shutdown, everyone was scrambling to see if they had enough supplies and were packing the stores to stock up. It was also the week Rochelle attended an online meeting from her corporate team at NextHome (Real Estate Brokerage). During the meeting, they encouraged their teams to reach out to our past clients and check in on them. The CEO prompted that now was the time to step up and help others. The NextHome slogan is #Humans Over Houses. The message rang deep into Rochelle’s soul. She glanced around and thought to herself, “I have everything I need”, what do others need? She quickly noticed that friends were posting on Facebook that they needed help, but didn’t see any organized groups jumping in to help.
 
Within three short months, SE WI Emergency Support Group, a non-profit organization obtained their 501C3 Status.
 
In September of 2020, we had the privilege of adding Angelica Graef to our team and she became our Director of Operations.
 
After some discussion we realized that our name wasn’t exactly fitting what we were doing. We hired a marketing company and added a DBA to our name, Friends With Food.
