This year, Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers’ are thrilled to announce the first of the 2019 EACH recipients, the Riverwest Food Pantry. Founded in 1979, the Riverwest Food Pantry has provided food and services to tens of thousands of impoverished Milwaukee residents with the mission statement of, “(coming) together around food to relieve hunger, improve lives and grow community well-being”. Together, volunteers and shoppers alike, can become a community of generosity — a community well-nourished, well-informed and strengthened to prevail.
The program takes volunteers several times a week at three different sites. For example, volunteers can prep food, work on the garden, or stock shelves. For more information, volunteers should visit their, “get involved” page. In addition, to a monetary donation, Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers plans on establishing regular volunteering among other possibilities.
