Hunger Task Force teams up with DoorDash, United Way to get food to seniors in need
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Hunger Task Force has a new way to get healthy, shelf-stable foods to seniors in need.
It's through a new partnership with United Way and DoorDash. Hunger Task Force reports 300 people have already signed up.
Monday morning, Aug. 9, DoorDash-ers picked up 84 stock boxes from HTF's new headquarters.
"Some people who don't necessarily need 'Meals on Wheels' but they still are infirmed or having difficulty going out. They may not drive or own a car anymore. It's reaching that target population, people who can take care of themselves who just need a little help getting the food to the door," said Sherrie Tussler, the executive director for the Hunger Task Force.
HTF says because DoorDash is involved, a smartphone is needed to coordinate deliveries. But they advise anyone to reach out to the organization or a family member for help navigating the app.
