Hunger Task Force kicks off annual program to collect holiday hams for local familiesHoliday hams – fresh or frozen – can be donated at Hunger Task Force’s Dock 1, 201 S. Hawley Court, or online for just $15 each throughout December.

Hunger Task Force encourages Milwaukee to be generous on Giving Tuesday and during the upcoming holiday season. Donated hams will be delivered to local pantries that will then distribute them to hungry Milwaukee families in time for a holiday meal.

Additionally, Patrick Cudahy will match the purchase price of any Patrick Cudahy deli or packaged ham purchase at local Pick ‘n Save and Metro Market retail stores with a monetary donation to Hunger Task Force through Dec. 31.
