Our Mission is to provide needy residents in Milwaukee County with healthy, nutritious food. We believe that feeding the hungry is not only our responsibility as Christians, it is a basic human instinct to help those who are less fortunate. We operate two emergency food pantries in the Milwaukee area.
Our main office and Friedens Community Food Pantry are inside in the Marcia P. Coggs Human Services Center on 1220 W. Vliet Street. This is the same building where food stamps are distributed. Our services are provided only to those who are delayed or denied acquiring food stamps. Only clients receiving a referral from their Food Share case worker, or from the Hunger Task Force, or from the Office on Aging are eligible to receive a 3 to 5 day supply of emergency food.
Despensa De la Paz, our second pantry, is located inside the rectory building for St. Vincent de Paul Church, 2114 W. Mitchell St. This is a traditional neighborhood pantry, where families can come once a month.
