Hunger Task Force's Match Madness MKE is back

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Hunger Task Force kicked off ‘Match Madness MKE’ Thursday, a community fundraising campaign to support hunger relief for Milwaukee families. For the third consecutive year, this program strikes hunger at a time when brackets and competitions are top of mind in the community.

Through a generous matching pool built by local donors all donations made to Hunger Task Force between March 1 – 11 will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

All funds raised through Match Madness MKE will be used to provide healthy and nutritious food to local pantries and meal programs to feed hungry children in the Hunger Task Force network.

“Match Madness MKE is a great way for the community to get involved and give back to get more bang for your buck during a time when hunger relief giving tends to be low,” said Sherrie Tussler, Executive Director of Hunger Task Force. “While we’re cheering on our favorite teams and thinking about Spring Break, others are thinking about their next meal. With the generous match in place, it’s easier than ever to give back.”

Donations can be made online at; via phone at 414-777-0483; via mail at 201 S. Hawley Court, Milwaukee, WI 53214; or in person by dropping off a gift at the address listed above.

CBS 58 will once again partner with Hunger Task Force and host a phone bank on Thursday, March 8.
