Hunger Task Force believes that every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity. We work to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by promoting social policies to achieve a hunger free community tomorrow. Hunger Task Force is Milwaukee's Free & Local food bank and Wisconsin's leading anti-hunger organization. Hunger Task Force was founded in 1974 by a group of parent advocates who were fighting for a school breakfast program in Milwaukee Public Schools. Today, Hunger Task Force provides a safety net of emergency food to a network of local food pantries and meal programs. Hunger Task Force is the only food bank in Milwaukee that does not charge for food, delivery, or network membership. Hunger Task Force continues to advocate for social policies and strong nutrition programs that fight future hunger.
