Hunger Task Force
8:30 - 1:00 P.M.
The Hunger Task Force operates a 208-acre farm to grow more than 500,000 pounds of fresh produce for Milwaukee’s hungry. Last year, Hunger Task Force delivered more than 9 million pounds of food to serve Milwaukee’s community.
Additionally, Harley-Davidson has been a strong supporter of the Hunger Task Force Farm since 2012. In 2018, Harley-Davidson announced that they would keep their commitment to the community a priority, helping Milwaukeeans in need with another 3-year sponsorship of The Farm!
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.
Our core values are justice, compassion, stewardship and dignity. Our goal and mission is to end hunger in our community and state.
