From healthy food
to healthcare,
we’re here when our neighbors need help.

Food Pantry

Our four-day-a-week Emergency Food Pantry is available to residents in the 53218, 53209 and 53225 zip codes. Every Friday senior citizens from any zip code can receive a stock box, which contains a three-day supply of emergency food.

We receive bi-weekly deliveries of food from Hunger Task Force. Many local businesses and other community partners also contribute to the food pantry through food drives and donations. Funding is provided by the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha Counties.

In addition to emergency food, we embrace pregnant women and their families in which we provide baby food, diapers, wipes, formula, and countless resources.

We serviced more than 3,000 people in the community. While it is unfortunate that so many people need emergency services, we are honored to provide these critical resources to our community.

Poverty is a root cause for hunger throughout Milwaukee, Wisconsin and America. The Silver Spring Neighborhood Center (SSNC) believes that by providing immediate relief to food insecurity while connecting participants to wraparound services, both within and outside of SSNC that participants will achieve self-sufficiency and consequently not need emergency services.
