Hunger Task Force reaches out to community

Local businesses are participating in the Hunger Task Force’s fall food drive.

Bring soup see soup

Milwaukee Art Museum visitors are encouraged to bring soup cans, or other non-perishable food items, for the Hunger Task Force from Tuesday, Nov. 10 until Sunday, Nov. 22.

To thank visitors for their generosity, anyone making a food donation will receive $2 off museum admission to see the Andy Warhol: The Last Decade exhibition and the entire Warhol experience.

Food items will be collected in barrels designed to reflect Warhol’s iconic screenprints of Cambell’s Soup cans. All donations will help the Hunger Task Force prevent hunger in our community this winter.  

Andy Warhol: The Last Decade, which has been recognized by both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times as one of the notable exhibitions to see this season, runs through January 3, 2010. For more information, visit

Equitable Bank food drive

The Equitable Bank, Milwaukee, will also host a food drive in conjunction with Hunger Task Force and outlying food pantries from Monday, Nov. 9 until Friday, Nov. 20.

“As a community bank, one of our primary missions is to serve the families in the markets we serve,” said John Matter, President and CEO of The Equitable Bank.

In order to increase the amount of donations, Equitable will be giving away reusable grocery bags to each customer who donates 5 or more non-perishable goods.

“We want to get our customers involved in this great cause and thank them for doing so,” said Matter.

The Equitable Bank has branches in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee and Racine Counties. Donations at each branch will stay in those communities.

“We work to assure that a safety net remains available to help feed the need of the community,” said Sherrie Tussler, executive director of Hunger Task Force.
