Many families in our community suffer from food insecurity and Garden Homes Lutheran Church in Milwaukee is committed to helping alleviate this burden by providing food to community members in need.

Purpose: Your children will help pack 40 food pantry bags with canned and boxed food items that will be given out the next day to families and individuals living with food insecurities. 

Impact: We hope that all of the children participating will grow in awareness of how to help those in need.

Activities: Your family will assemble 40 food pantry bags with provided canned and boxed food items. 

Materials: All materials will be provided on site for your family. Please have you and your children (appropriate ages) wear a mask.

Parking is available on Roosevelt or on 24th Place (one-way street with access off Teutonia). Please enter the building entrance on 24th Place. You will meet Julia Mattek and family minister Paul Marquardt to help assemble bags in the lobby. We will all wear masks and allow space for social distancing as much as possible.
