Route Representatives move mission ahead at full throttle

Aug 12, 2021

Route Representatives – drivers, distributers and delivery-ers of Hunger Task Force food resources – are critical to our mission. As the daily link to volunteers, pantries and distribution sites, this team of seven serves as the front line to our growing network. Logging 75,833 miles last year, Route Reps are more than just drivers – they are at the heart of what we do. Supporting Hunger Task Force as the leading Free & Local anti-hunger organization, Route Representatives deliver over 13 million pounds of nutritious food to our community with dignity, compassion, stewardship and justice.

Hunger Task Force is Milwaukee’s Free & Local food bank and Wisconsin’s anti-hunger leader. The organization provides healthy and nutritious food to hungry children, families and seniors in the community absolutely free of charge. Hunger Task Force was founded in 1974 by a local advocacy group who then formed Milwaukee’s first food bank. Today, Hunger Task Force is 100% supported by the community and provides a safety net of emergency food with dignity to a network of 75 food pantries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Through legislative analysis, education and community organizing, Hunger Task Force continues to advocate for anti-hunger policy at the local, state and federal level. For more information, visit
