Friedens Community Ministries
Last updated on October 5, 2015


Friedens Community Ministries, Inc. is a network of food pantries building ladders of peace throughout Milwaukee. We believe that a dependable supply of food is a means of bringing hope and dignity to our community.

Friedens Community Ministries has been building ladders of peace throughout Milwaukee for over 35 years. We know that without a steady supply of nutritious food that it is difficult to focus on other needs in life. It may be a life of survival, instead of peace. Friedens addresses the emergency food needs of those in Milwaukee. We currently have three locations, with a new location coming soon:

  1. Our Coggs Center location (1220 W. Vliet St., 53205) serves households one time, often when they are having difficulties with their food share case.
  2. Each Saturday, at Despensa de la Paz (1615 S. 22nd St., 53204) we serve 125+ families in 2 hours. With our dedicated team of volunteers, we not only provide food but a place to come and be in community.
  3. The newest pantry that we are operating is at Hope House (209 W. Orchard St., 53204). We took over management of the pantry on January 1st, 2015.
  4. We are in the process of opening a new location at Zion Rock church, close to 102nd and Fond du Lac. This location was chosen by Hunger Task Force as an area of great need.

In 2014, Friedens served 37,000 individuals. We strive to provide a 3-5 day supply of nutritious food including meat protein, fruits and vegetables (fresh when possible), dairy products, soups, breakfast foods, bread, starches such as pasta. We not only try to avoid hunger but we also provide healthy food choices to our many clients.
