“Hunger Task Force: Free & Local”
As the Director of Advocacy, Maureen Fitzgerald’s work focuses on access, participation, and program quality of the federal nutrition programs.
Hunger Task Force is a private, nonprofit organization that works to end hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow. Food provided is free of charge, through a network of local meal programs, food pantries and homeless shelters. In addition, Hunger Task Force members promote social policies and support common sense solutions to end hunger. Currently 43 % of Milwaukee’s children and 29% of all Milwaukee residents live in poverty. Hunger Task Force believes that every person has the right to adequate food obtained with dignity. Every month, partner food pantries serve 36,000 people, and partner soup kitchens/homeless shelters dish up more than 55, 000 hot meals.
