Riverwest Food Pantry
The Riverwest Food Pantry is a community of generosity where all have a place at the table. We alleviate food insecurity by providing access to healthy food through an interactive shopping experience. We grow and cook food together since solidarity is the best entry point into our shoppers lives. We sit and listen so we can create nurturing mentor relationships that connect people to needed resources. We invite young adults to find greater meaning in their lives through a year of service and living in community. We create a space where members of our community discover the gifts they are meant to offer and the gifts they are meant to receive.
If you're an individual, the easiest way to get involved with the Riverwest Food Pantry is to drop in to one of our sites on Saturday morning at 8am – no need to sign up or apply. Tasks vary based on need and volunteer interest. Volunteers assist pantry clients with registration, grocery selection, helping shoppers carry bags, serving snacks, cleaning up -- and anything else we can use help with. Hands-on training and assignments are given upon arrival.
Individuals are always welcome to drop in at our St. Casimir site on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturday mornings. Groups of 3 or more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail at 414-301-1478.
If you are a young adult, or know a young adult, who is interested in giving a year of service with the Riverwest Food Pantry, please email Samantha Vosters at email@example.com.

Consider serving as an adult leader for teens serving on Reach Out Reach In (RORI). RORI is a local summer service week for teens aged 15 through 18, who have completed 9th grade and who want to be involved in direct service and social action in our community. The sites, located around the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, include homeless shelters, adult day care, community organizations, meal programs, farms, child care and more.
