According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 41.1% of children in Milwaukee lived below the poverty line in 2010, making it difficult for them to regularly obtain proper nutrition. Although some children have access to meal programs at school, they must still go hungry when school is not in session. Hunger Task Force works to prevent hunger and malnutrition by distributing food to a network of pantries, shelters, and meal programs, and by advocating for greater government support of hungry citizens.
Hunger Task Force supplies approximately 60,000 meals to 82 pantries and meal programs across Milwaukee County, and more than half of the 35,000 people who visit the pantries every month are children. The Hunger Task Force's emergency-food fund provides nutritious meals such as peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, chicken-noodle soup, and grilled cheese to those in need, with a special focus on children facing hunger. It costs Hunger Task Force $10 to provide a month's worth of lunches for one child.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide nutritious meals to Milwaukee children. If G-Team members raise $300, then Hunger Task Force can fund lunches for 30 low-income children for one month. Each additional $10 raised will fund a month's worth of lunches for another child.
