About Us

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.

At Friedens we bring together a team of people who donate food, finances, time, tears, and talent to help us make sure that people can access the food they desperately need.  At the base of the ladder, we know that without food in ones cupboards one cannot have a real sense of peace.  Our food pantry network is the base of what we do, our foundation.  Yet we believe that if we can help people move up the rungs of the ladder at the same time we can make long term change.  We do this by incorporating local individuals into our volunteer team…  into our community.  Being a part of something more than themselves and tangibly helping others allows people to build job skills, gain a reliable reference, and even raise ones shoulders higher as they know they are making a difference in someone else’s life.

We are able to continue this mission because of a dedicated team of individuals, businesses, organizations, churches, etc. that come together to make sure we can continue to be a network of food pantries building ladders of peace.
