Rivion’s goal for 2019 was to give back to our community as much as possible. We had many fun and adventurous volunteer days from getting muddy ‘down on the farm’ with Hunger Task Force to sore hands from build day with Habitat for Humanity. Our recent volunteer day was just before the Christmas holiday once again with the Hunger Task Force. Working with other volunteers we built 680 stockboxes for low-income seniors. Building Stockboxes is the important first step in making sure that low-income seniors have monthly access to healthy and nutritious foods. Each box contains 18 items from canned vegetables, fruit, juice to rice and beans. Stay tuned for 2020 as we continue our goal to give back to our community in the new year!
Hunger Task Force is an independent anti-hunger organization created in Milwaukee to serve Milwaukee. Unlike national food bank chains, Hunger Task Force does not charge local pantries for food, delivery or network membership fees. They believe that healthy food should be provided free of charge based upon need, not upon an organization’s ability to pay. The organization is supported 100% by the local community…donors support Hunger Task Force because they believe in the Free & Local model to end hunger.
