Campus-Wide Food Drive


Fall 2017 – Exact dates TBD

All proceeds go to the Hunger Task Force (, a free and local food bank located here in Milwaukee. 60 collection boxes are placed around campus during the drive, and each box is overseen by a UWM employee or department. Aside from non-perishable food items, folks can also donate money directly to the Hunger Task Force. Checks made out to the “Hunger Task Force” can be dropped off at the CCBLLR, Union G28, or monetary donations can be made at the UW Credit Union on campus to the “UWM Service Account”. For further information on the drive, email Laurie Marks .
