Hunger Relief Federation receives support from the Tavern League of Wisconsin
This week, the Hunger Relief Federation received generous support from the Tavern League of Wisconsin (TLW). The league’s $3,185 gift will be used to provide scholarships to Federation members for the 2022 Hunger Relief Federation Conference being planned for next fall.
Dan Taivalkoski, Southern Zone Vice President for the TLW and Executive Director at the Racine County Food Bank, spearheaded the fundraising efforts. As owner of The Beacon Tavern & Grill in Racine, WI and Hunger Relief Federation member, Taivalkoski’s distinct roles make him a unique ambassador to connect these two worlds.
With over 5,000 members, the Tavern League of Wisconsin is the largest trade association in the United States to exclusively represent the interests of licensed beverage retailers. Founded in 1935, the Tavern League of Wisconsin also has a charitable arm, the Tavern League of Wisconsin Foundation, helping create goodwill in the communities their members call home. The league’s gift is comprised of direct support from the 1st and 9th districts, as well as from additional money raised from a collection at the 85th Annual Fall Convention and Trade Show earlier this month.
The Hunger Relief Federation of Wisconsin comprises 134 members in 72 counties, 3 states and two countries, joining together to end hunger. The Hunger Relief Federation is committed to feeding people in need today and advocating for public policies to end hunger tomorrow. Learn more at: https://hungerrelieffederation.org/
