The Greater Milwaukee Foundation has awarded a $15,000 grant to the Food Pantry of Waukesha County to support the nonprofit’s continued increase in demand for food.
The grant will help fund a community outreach assistant position. This role will be responsible for assessing client needs, providing community members in need information and directing them to other community resources to help them sustain their basic needs.
The Food Pantry of Waukesha County serves more than 6,500 individuals with food each month. Forty percent of those it benefits are children.
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation funded more than $725,700 through its first quarter competitive grants.
