HUNGER TASK FORCE STOCKBOX PROGRAM
Hunger Task Force administers the Commodity Supplemental Food Program-known locally as Stockbox-which provides a healthy and nutritious box of supplementary food to low-income seniors. Each month Hunger Task Force delivers nearly 9,000 Stockboxes to low-income seniors at senior housing sites in Southeastern Wisconsin.
To qualify for a Stockbox, seniors must be 60 years or older and a resident of Milwaukee County, and meet the monthly income requirements. The West Allis Senior Center is a monthly Stockbox distribution site where individuals currently enrolled in this program may pick up their box.
Seniors in need or their caregivers may call 2-1-1, Milwaukee county’s information and referral program, for more information about meeting the nutritional needs of seniors during this time.
