COA’s Food Pantry at the Goldin Center

In March 2018, COA partnered with Hunger Task Force to open a brand new community food pantry in our Goldin Center! Located within our Ethel Nutis Gill Family Resource Center, COA’s new food pantry serves approximately 1000 people per month. The pantry has increased hundreds of families’ access to healthy foods in the Amani neighborhood, which is located in the center of Milwaukee’s largest food desert.

The new food pantry is one-of-a-kind because it allows families to connect to all the other resources and programs that COA has to offer. Families with children ages birth to six who visit COA’s food pantry can access a variety of free resources provided through the Gill Family Resource Center like clothing, referrals, and legal aid. COA’s Gill Family Resource Center (FRC) provides fun activities and drop-in programming for families with children ages birth to six, including playtime, art projects, reading, songs, and snacks.

COA is grateful for our strong partnership with Hunger Task Force. Thanks to their vital support, the food pantry continues to grow and thrive.

COA’s Food Pantry at the Goldin Center is open three days a week. The hours are as follows: 

Monday 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Wednesday 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am -12:00 pm
