Hunger Task Force

Ending Hunger is Our Mission

Food Bank

Hunger Task Force has been feeding Milwaukee since 1974—we are the Free & Local food bank that assures a safety net for those facing the struggle of hunger. Our food bank delivers food absolutely free of charge to a local network of 80 food pantries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters in Milwaukee County.

To ensure a healthy and nutritious supply of food within our network, Hunger Task Force combines government commodities, food collected from local food drives, purchased emergency food, and fresh fruits and vegetables from our Farm and Fish Hatchery. This food supply represents breakfast, lunch and dinner based on family household size and dietary needs. Families can receive emergency food with dignity, on the day they need it and in the neighborhood where they live.
