MATC donates food and supplies from culinary arts program to Hunger Task Force
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) teamed up with the Hunger Task Force to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The school inventoried all their food and some supplies from their Culinary Arts program and food service, and loaded it into a Hunger Task Force truck Friday morning, March 27.
The large donation included 212 pounds of potatoes, 27 cartons of eggs, 35 pounds of carrots and 37 pounds of onions.
MATC also donated bleach and gloves which will help out a lot while everyone is trying to be sanitary during the coronavirus outbreak.
The school and Hunger Task Force already have a partnership through their student resource center to help students in need.
"Even in times when there is not a pandemic, many of our students face housing and food and other insecurities just lack of basic resources and we know that is going to escalate in major ways not only for our students but for everyone in the community. So, this is something we can do to support the community but we really do hope it inspires others," said College Advancement and External Communications Vice President, Laura Bray.
