Hunger Task Force Receives $50,000 Gift from The Brico Fund to Purchase Food for Milwaukee’s Hungry
Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director of Hunger Task Force said, “Strengthening the safety net that ensures nutritious foods for our most vulnerable Milwaukeeans helps us all breathe a little easier.
Milwaukee (February 25, 2013)— Hunger Task Force has received a special $50,000 gift from The Brico Fund to help fight hunger in our community. After learning that Hunger Task Force will be faced with great challenges to keep the local safety intact for families, The Brico Fund answered the call and pledged the gift.
This donation will be especially beneficial to children and seniors in need as it will be used to purchase chicken noodle soup, 2% milk and infant formula. Due to a cut in federal commodity funding, Hunger Task Force has been challenged with securing truckloads of food that had traditionally been supplied by The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). The donation from The Brico Fund will result in 50,400 cans of chicken noodle soup, 38,400 units of fresh milk and 469 cans of infant formula. These healthy, easy to eat items are important staples in the diets of both young and old.
Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director of Hunger Task Force said, “Strengthening the safety net that ensures nutritious foods for our most vulnerable Milwaukeeans helps us all breathe a little easier. As the Free & Local food bank it means so much to receive a gift of this magnitude from a local organization that goes back out into the community to feed our neighbors.”
Hunger Task Force is an anti-hunger organization which believes that every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity. Hunger Task Force works to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by promoting social policies to achieve food security tomorrow.
