The Hunger Task Force annual Holiday Card program is a festive tradition – every card sent and received helps put food on the table for local families, children and seniors. Each year, nearly 15,000 cards are purchased, spreading an artist’s work far and wide in Milwaukee.

Hunger Task Force is looking for creative, festive, secular designs that focus on togetherness, connectivity and winter traditions. Artwork of all kinds are encouraged, from photography, to sketches, to digital renderings. In particular, bright snowflakes, Milwaukee-skyline images, barns, snow-covered pine trees, etc. have been popular. Artist biographies are included on the back of each card and across promotional materials. We advertise this program through direct mail, e-newsletters and multiple social media platforms.
