About Hunger Task Force
Get connected: | 414.777.0483
Hunger Task Force was founded in 1974 by a group of concerned parents worried about children going to school hungry. Then, in 1977, they responded to community need by opening a food bank to distribute free food to local charities that feed the hungry. More than 4,000 people volunteer each year, putting their time and talent to work across all areas of the agency. Hunger Task Force charges no fees and receives no United Way funding, so most of their budget is raised through ongoing solicitations from foundations, corporations, labor unions and individuals. Hunger Task Force attacks hunger on two fronts: Advocacy and Food Banking.

Each day, they provide food and shelter for up to 400 men, women and children who might have nowhere else to turn without the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. In addition to meeting their immediate needs, they provide the training, support and guidance they need to rebuild their lives.
