The Prince of Peace School/ Escuela Principe de Paz is a Catholic school committed to serving the students and families on the near south side of Milwaukee.
Their vision is to empower the whole child in preparation for a life in an ever-changing world. Service is a central component to the school’s mission and vision.
Prince of Peace School says:
“Friedens Community Ministries, Inc. is a network of food pantries which build ladders of peace throughout Milwaukee. They believe that a dependable supply of food is a means of bringing hope and dignity to the community. Friedens brings together a team of people who donate food, finances, time, tears, and talent to help make sure that people can access the food they desperately need. The food pantry network is the base of what they do; they believe that if they can help
people move up the rungs of the ladder, long term change can happen.
Prince of Peace partners with Despensa de la Paz to provide volunteers for their food pantry. We facilitate student involvement approximately 10 times throughout the
year. When students attend, they are allowed to bring food home for their families. Each student that participates with this program is then considered part of their
“family”. They are encouraged to continue to assist at the food pantry on their own.”
