Hunger Task Force

Hunger Task Force, locally founded, locally funded, and locally run since 1974, is an anti-hunger public policy organization and food bank in Milwaukee. They promote social policies to achieve a hunger free community tomorrow, ensuring that all federal nutrition programs are properly administered and accessible to people in need. In 2015, with support from the Social Innovation Fund, a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), Hunger Task Force joined No Kid Hungry to launch No Kid Hungry Wisconsin. With the launch of this partnership, No Kid Hungry Wisconsin's focus will begin with Greater Milwaukee. The Greater Milwaukee area is the state's largest and poorest urban area — with child poverty near 50%. Over half of the recipients of food aid in the area are children.
