As part of our ongoing community contribution and support, Components Company is hosting a food drive for the Hunger Task Force this year.
The drive started in late October and will continue until Tuesday, Nov. 21; just in time for Thanksgiving on Nov. 23.
About Hunger Task Force
Formed in the early 1980s, the Hunger Task Force is Milwaukee’s local food bank as well as the state of Wisconsin’s leading anti-hunger organization. The Hunger Task Force touts itself as the only Milwaukee food bank that doesn’t charge for food, delivery or membership.
Through donations, the Hunger Task Force provides healthy, nutritious foods to soup kitchens, homeless shelters and food pantries throughout the Milwaukee area. The organization also has a farm with more than 200 acres where volunteers grow fruits and vegetables for the sole purpose of feeding the hungry.
About the Food Drive
The Hunger Task Force provides a list to companies who wish to participate in a food drive. The list contains details of the preferred food items that can be donated through the drive. The items must be all non-perishable; i.e. canned, jarred, boxed or otherwise packaged.
Here are some examples of preferred food items from the list:
- Green beans
- Spaghetti Sauce
- Peanut Butter
- Brown rice
- Cereal (no added sugar)
- Multigrain pasta
- Boxed milk alternatives such as skim, almond or soy
However, if employees or individuals wish to donate fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy or meats, the Hunger Task Force does accept these items at its location at 201 S. Hawley Ct., Milwaukee, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
