Friedens Community Ministries
Last updated on August 3, 2015


Our mission is to provide needy residents in Milwaukee County with healthy, nutritious food. We believe that feeding the hungry is not only our responsibility as Christians, it is a basic human instinct to help those who are less fortunate.

Friedens provides a 3-5 day supply of food at one of three different locations.
Office and Coggs Center Food Pantry: 1220 W. Vliet St.
Despensa de la Paz Food Pantry: 2114 W. Mitchell St.
JCY Food Pantry: 9050 N. Swan Rd.

Friedens provides food supplied by The Emergency Food Assistance Program, TEFAP, which is administered in Milwaukee by the Hunger Task Force. Eligible clients must be living below 185% of the federal poverty level, as required by the TEFAP program. Additional food supplies come from the FEMA program, and purchased from Feeding America and Share, and donated by Pick 'n Save, Bread Smith, Inc., and many faith and civic groups. Friedens is supported financially in part by faith groups, individual donors, the Racine Dominicans, St. Benedict's, St. Vincent De Paul Society, and the United Way of Greater Milwaukee. Volunteers are the heart and soul of Friedens' pantries. With them we are able to fulfill our promise to "feed, encourage, educate, nurture,and seek justice for all people in Greater Milwaukee."
