1 A publication of Hunger Task Force hungertaskforce.org Summer 2013 HUNGER CONNECTION The Harley-Davidson Foundation Makes History at the Hunger Task Force Farm On May 1, The Harley-Davidson Foundation announced major support of the Hunger Task Force Farm in Franklin over the next three years. The Foundation presented a check in the amount of $2,475,000 an annual investment of $825,000! This is the largest gift in our agency s history and the largest gift ever given by The Harley-Davidson Foundation. Harley s investment will support a Work Program for adults normally dependent on welfare. These one-year jobs will pay a sustaining wage and help lift them into full-time employment. What s more, Harley s support will also help grow our youth nutrition education program and preserve the Farm s precious environmental resources and natural areas. All while growing fresh produce for local families in need! The Harley-Davidson Foundation s support of the Farm is fueled by its commitment to education, health and the environment. With Harley s one-of-a-kind leadership, we look forward to taking the Farm to new heights! Kohl s Serving Up Supper for Kids Page 2 Nutrition Education Kitchen is Finished! Page 5 Save at Summer Festivals Page 6 We believe every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity.

2 Additional support for the summer meals program comes from a team of local organizations working together to keep meal sites open, staffed and safe for local kids. This team includes Milwaukee Public Schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, Milwaukee Center for Independence, HeartLove Place, Salvation Army and the Milwaukee Wave. This summer, Hunger Task Force is also teaming up with national partner Share Our Strength as a No Kid Hungry Ally. The No Kid Hungry campaign is working to end childhood hunger in America and helps connect kids in need to effective nutrition programs like summer meals. Also helping to feed kids in Milwaukee this summer is the Jane Bradley Pettit Foundation. August is a tricky month because school programming stops, camps are done, but kids still need to eat. The Jane Bradley Pettit Foundation is stepping forward to help meet that need and keep sites open. Summer for children should be a carefree time to sleep late and play all day in the sun. But at the end of that day, a healthy supper should never be a maybe for a child in need. Children in our city should not have to go to bed hungry. That s why Kohl s Cares is making sure that local low-income Milwaukee kids will be staying healthy and safe all summer long through the Kohl s Serving Up Supper for Kids program! This storied program now in its third year provides a nutritious supper to kids attending meal sites all across Milwaukee. Thanks to Kohl s Cares, kids get three healthy meals a day while they enjoy their summer fun and activities. Starting in June, you can call or visit impactinc.org to find the nearest summer meal sites in your neighborhood. Look for those green Free Meal signs for a site near you! Thank you Kohl s Cares for being Milwaukee s hometown hero for kids! 2

3 Hunger is not a problem. It is an obscenity. Anne Frank Being treated with dignity and respect is something we all expect and desire. It becomes even more important when we are facing difficult times and are in the position of asking for assistance from others. Hunger does not respect age, sex, race, where we are from or what language we speak. The people we help speak many different languages and come in different sizes, shapes and colors. In order to serve people better, Hunger Task Force has multi-lingual staff. All organizations that receive federal assistance through Hunger Task Force are given civil rights training for all front line staff and volunteers. This includes any and all organizations that receive commodities from The Emergency Food Assistance Program, the Stockbox Program, funds distributed from the Emergency Food and Shelter Program, and Hunger Task Force staff. In addition to the civil rights training we provide our staff and network, Hunger Task Force advocates for all persons who are eligible to have equal access to the federal nutrition programs. In 2009, for example, Hunger Task Force filed a complaint with the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services surrounding disparate treatment of persons with limited English proficiency within the FoodShare program. We also translate vital documents, we monitor and test FoodShare application sites and we work to ensure equal access to vital programs. Hunger Task Force continues to monitor, update, and report to the USDA and State of Wisconsin s Office of Affirmative Action and Civil Rights Compliance regarding the need to provide equal access to FoodShare for people with Limited English Proficiency. For more information on Hunger Task Force s civil rights complaint, visit HungerTaskForce.org or contact Maureen Fitzgerald, Director of Advocacy at (414) The Warshafsky I Speak Deck was designed to help individuals obtain interpretive services. It contains cards in 18 languages that explain, I can t help you but 211 can. Call 211 or from your cell phone. Translations include Arabic, Chinese, Hmong, Russian, Spanish, Thai and more. It is intended to be used as a resource for the community to ensure consistent and effective interaction with persons with limited English proficiency. Production of the Warshafsky I Speak Deck was made possible thanks to support from the family and friends of Milwaukee attorney Ted Warshafsky ( ). 3

4 Local leader DCI Marketing believes in the Hunger Task Force mission and wanted to get involved. Their President, Michael Doody told us, By helping Hunger Task Force, our people know that they are having an immediate impact right here in our community providing the most basic of human needs. What we like about working with your agency is that this is a sustainable initiative year after year. There is an ongoing variety of volunteering opportunities available and many ways our employees can get involved. Enthusiasm and participation are much greater when people choose how they want to help, and they feel genuinely good about their volunteer efforts. We thought the demonstration kitchen was the perfect project for DCI because we were able to use our in-house talent and skills. From designing the kitchen layout to production and installation, DCI employees were engaged in every aspect of the development and implementation. The end result is something we are all extremely proud of. Our Nutrition Education Kitchen is Finished! Before Hunger Task Force has some exciting news we ve recently put the finishing touches on our brand new kitchen facility at the Farm! Now, kids participating in our nutrition education program will have a unique and special place to learn about healthy eating and making recipes with fresh fruits and vegetables. Thanks to DCI Marketing and local partners, the re-vamped kitchen includes cooking demonstration islands, sinks, ovens and stoves, refrigerators and brand new windows that overlook the school garden outside. It s a unique centerpiece to a growing program that will educate 600 kids this year from Milwaukee Public Schools! From farm to table: Skills learned at our new nutrition education kitchen will build directly upon the farm experience, helping children understand the complete cycle of healthier eating. 4

5 e W t s l l A F s i a e m r s r r a M e k t Adding FoodShare! The City of West Allis Health Department has announced plans to add FoodShare (food stamps) as a purchase option for shoppers at the West Allis Farmers Market this summer. Health Department Commissioner Sally Nuslock and the West Allis Health Board are adding this option for a simple reason: to make farmers market fresh foods available to low-income families who receive FoodShare. The Challenge: Technology FoodShare benefits are issued to customers through a state-issued electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card the Quest card. The card is used like a bank card that you would swipe at checkout to buy groceries. The system hinges on grocers having a phone line or wireless internet to process FoodShare EBT transactions. Because most farmers markets don t have a phone line or wireless internet available for each vendor, only five Milwaukee County markets are currently FoodShare friendly. To get around this limitation, the West Allis Farmers Market will set up a single payment point for FoodShare customers. FoodShare customers will be able to swipe their Quest card at the payment point and receive $1 tokens for the amount requested. They can then use those tokens at participating vendors to purchase food. The vendors turn in the tokens to the farmers market for reimbursement. Ensuring that hungry people have access to nutritious food is a part of the Hunger Task Force mission, and the West Allis Health Department is making an important contribution by adding FoodShare to its farmers market. 5
