The Salvation Army has two food pantries in Milwaukee County, providing a 2-3 day supply of emergency food to neighborhood individuals and families who are hungry. The food is given on the day it is requested and represents breakfast, lunch and dinner for all members of the household. Those receiving food are also informed about how they can participate in supplemental food programs so they can move beyond visiting charity food pantries.
Our Milwaukee pantry serves residents of the 53205 and 53208 zip codes. Our Oak Creek pantry serves residents of 53207, 53108, 53110, 53129, 53130, 53132, 53154, 53220, 53221, 53228, 53235 and 53172 zip codes. Individuals living outside of these areas are served at their initial visit, and then referred to the pantry that serves their neighborhood.
We serve an average of 15,000 individuals annually. The Salvation Army Food Pantry is supported through various food drives and donations from Hunger Task Force.
