Meet the new faces of Hunger Task Force

Nov 28, 2022

The principal strength of Hunger Task Force is its compassionate and committed staff. As an anti-hunger organization, Hunger Task Force commits to hiring staff with an array of skills, talents and the cultural competence to best serve our diverse community. Hunger Task Force is proud to announce the addition of three new faces to our Hunger Relief Federation, Administration and Development teams. We are thrilled to welcome Mark, Melissa and Will to their new roles at Hunger Task Force.

Mark Lisowski

Hunger Relief Federation Organizer

Hunger Task Force is excited to welcome Mark Lisowski back to the Advocacy Team. After previously serving as a Community Distribution Assistant assisting with outreach to unhoused communities in 2019, Mark returns to Hunger Task Force as the Hunger Relief Federation Organizer.

The Hunger Relief Federation, established by Hunger Task Force in 2016, works to expand the Free-Local-Independent model to anti-hunger organizations in Wisconsin. In addition to his past experience on the Outreach team supporting Hunger Task Force’s mission and anti-hunger work, Mark brings a wealth of knowledge to the Federation, including non-profit data management, collection and evaluation.

Melissa Vasquez

Human Resources Generalist

A Milwaukee native, Melissa Vasquez has a passion for empowering individuals and building cohesive, well-trained teams. Previously a FoodShare Advocate on the ACCESS Team, Melissa made the transition to Hunger Task Force’s newly created Human Resource Generalist position this fall.

With over fifteen years’ experience in recruiting, onboarding and project management, Melissa will work to run the daily functions of the Human Resource department. In her new role, she will manage hiring and interviewing new staff, overseeing pay, benefits, and leave, evaluating and evolving equity practices and upholding company policies.

Will Skrundz

Donor Database Manager

Bringing years of experience in database management and prospect research to the Development Team, Will Skrundz joins Hunger Task Force as the Donor Database Manager. His previous roles at local non-profits, including the Milwaukee Public Museum and Special Olympics, have empowered Will to better steward Hunger Task Force’s generous donor community.

In his role as Donor Database Manager, Will manages Hunger Task Force’s constituent relationship management system, oversees mailings and e-communication strategies, supports donor stewardship efforts, prepares detailed donation queries and supervises the Gift Processing Specialist.

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
