Can you imagine what it would be like to wake up in the morning and get ready for work or school without having breakfast or coffee? What about getting ready without a kitchen or even a table to sit at? This is a daily reality for homeless men, women and children in Milwaukee.

Luckily, when homeless people come to Hope House, that situation changes. We know how important food can be, not just for nutrition and energy, but also for comfort and culture. That’s why we prioritize healthy, fresh food for our residents every single day. Before clients stay in shelter, they are likely getting their meals through a combination of SNAP (food stamps), food pantry donations and soup kitchens. Unlike many shelters that focus just on providing sleeping accommodations, Hope House aims to serve the whole person. To that end, we serve breakfast, lunch, snacks for children in our after school program, and a home cooked dinner to our clients each evening.

We offer healthy options, like fresh produce from the farms of Hunger Task Force as well our on-site garden, and a carefully balanced selection of groceries, including proteins, fruits, vegetables, and starches in every bag. We hope that our assistance can enable...
