Meet Our 2014 Milwaukee Empty Bowls Recipients

The following organizations will receive funds raised from our 2014 Annual Event and other fundraising activities:

Central City Churches
Central City Churches Outreach Ministry exists to serve Milwaukee’s hungry and homeless as well as those who need a hand up. Their Food Pantry serves people who live in zip codes 53205, 53208, 53210 and 53233 with emergency food – enough to prepare three meals for about three days and feed all members of the household. The Food Pantry is open 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. Monday-Thursday.

Fondy Food Center
The Fondy Food Center runs the Fondy Farmers Market located at the corner of 22nd and Fond du Lac Avenue, just one block north of North Avenue. Open four days per week during the growing season and home to over 29 farmers and vendors, it is one of the largest producer-only outdoor markets in the area.

Friedens Community Ministries, Inc.
Friedens Community Ministries, Inc. is a network of food pantries that build ladders of peace throughout Milwaukee and believes a dependable supply of food is a means of bringing hope and dignity to our community. Without a steady supply of nutritious food it is difficult to focus on other needs in life. Friedens addresses the emergency food needs of some of the poorest populations in Milwaukee and operates three pantries in Milwaukee’s central city, and on the north and south sides.

Milwaukee Christian Center
Motivated by concern for the poor, MCC’s Emergency Food Pantry addresses the emergency needs of very low income individuals and families by: providing a three to five day supply of emergency food; offering a basic needs assessment to individuals and families in the most distressing circumstances;  providing culturally appropriate food to Hmong, Lao, and Latino families;  providing service in Spanish, Hmong, and Laotian languages; and  offering a commodity supplemental food program to qualifying individuals and families.

Milwaukee Rescue Mission
The Milwaukee Rescue Mission has faithfully served the homeless and poor of Milwaukee since 1893. They meet short-term emergency needs, such as food, shelter and clothing, as well as provide comprehensive recovery programs, such as educational and vocational counseling, addiction recovery programs, financial management, biblical instruction and life-skills training.
