Strength To Serve
Help Support Hunger Task Force’s Capital Campaign &
Help Build Our Strength to Serve
During the pandemic, Hunger Task Force has been called into action to distribute significantly more food to families in need, both in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin. With our facilities bursting at the seams with food, we realized we needed to expand our capacity.
In December 2020, Hunger Task Force purchased a new building at 5000 W. Electric Avenue in the Village of West Milwaukee. This 120,000 square foot warehouse will serve as the future headquarters of Hunger Task Force!
Here are a few of the exciting highlights that will enhance our mission:
102,000 square feet of warehouse space to hold all Hunger Task Force’s food resources
Prime, central location in Milwaukee County for emergency food delivery to food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and senior sites
Combines our two existing warehouses into one, significantly reducing transportation, storage and shuttling costs
Moves all our program staff under one roof for the first time!
With food bank operations already transitioned to the new space, our goal is to move remaining staff and resources to the building in early 2022. Spaces currently under construction include a Volunteer Welcome Center, Nutrition Education Kitchen, Client Services Room and Community Engagement Center.
Making all this happen will require some resources, so we’re undertaking a capital campaign to raise funds to turn this warehouse into a food bank that will serve families and our community for years to come. Our current fundraising goal is $153,000. Check out our Campaign Casebook to learn about our goals and donor recognition opportunities, and see renderings of the program spaces.
