Building Community Through Food

We provide encouraging spaces where neighbors can select and
prepare free, quality food with dignity, while building relationships and having
experiences that support wellness in all areas of life.

At Friedens, everyone can find the nourishment they need.

Each year our network of community food centers nourishes 54,000 lives with food
and friendship at four locations and through home deliveries.

Get Food

We offer four convenient locations across Milwaukee. Learn how to access food.


Everyone is welcome to volunteer – 6 days a week. It’s an experience that can truly nourish the soul. Serving others is a powerful way to improve our own lives in addition to others. Come check out one of our locations and discover the power of food, love, and community.  


All gifts of time, talent, and treasure make this mission possible. 

Client Testimonials

"I had heard about the pantry but never been. Finally when there was no food in my fridge I went. I was surprised by the amount of food i was offered. My 13 year old son was happy to have diapers for his sister. We felt a lot of joy that day"

"Apart from the food, more than anything, it's the friendships that the pantry does best. I meet other people and we also share resources amongst each other."
Pantry Shopper
"The pantry… I don't know if I can express exactly what it means to me. I'd gone to the pantry one day to get food but I got support and love and peace and family. I can go there at any time and get support, not just food, but emotional, spiritual, and physical. It's more than a pantry, it's a family. It's a community and there's no judgment - whether you need food or don't, whether you need just a home… everyone is there. "
