Hunger Task Force, Inc. is a non-profit, anti-hunger public policy organization in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Hunger Task Force works to end hunger in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin by providing direct food delivery services, and works to end future hunger by advocating for fair and responsible administration of federal nutrition assistance programs.
Hunger Task Force was formed in 1974 by a group of parents who were concerned their children were going to school hungry in Milwaukee Public Schools. These parents banded together and successfully advocated for a school breakfast program.
In 1977, WISN-TV in Milwaukee organized the Food For Families holiday food drive, and the "task force" was called upon to collect, store and distribute the donated food, creating Milwaukee's first and foremost food bank. Today, Hunger Task Force is a wholly donor driven community institution, and is supported by thousands of volunteers every year.
Hunger Task Force is a member of the Hunger Relief Fund of Wisconsin, a federation of charities dedicated to providing free and nutritious food to low-income families.
The current Executive Director of Hunger Task Force is Sherrie Tussler.
