About

The Interchange Food Pantry Mission: Improve the health and well-being of our guests through nutritious food and compassion.

Our vision: Feed all guests who enter our door until there is no one at our door.

Structure: The Interchange Food Pantry (IFP) is a faith-based organization consisting of seven congregations from the eastside of Milwaukee. We are governed by the board of directors, which consists of members of the seven congregations. Our staff consists of the Executive Director (full time) and several part-time employees (office coordinator, pantry assistants and a bookkeeper). The IFP relies heavily on volunteers to help with the day to day operation of the food pantry. We have a core team of 50 plus volunteers who help each week, along with a variety of volunteers helping throughout the year.

The IFP Guest Choice Program allows our guests to select their food instead of receiving a pre-packed or standard bag of groceries.

Footprint: In May of 2018, the IFP expanded our services from a neighborhood pantry (lower eastside) to serving the city of Milwaukee. Reasons for our decision:

In operating an emergency food pantry, we are committed to serving those in need without discrimination, regardless of beliefs. 

The IFP began in 1971. Supporting institutions include founding congregations plus organizations that have joined Interchange over the years. Our members are Cathedral Church of All Saints, First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, Immanuel Presbyterian Church, North Shore Presbyterian Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Summerfield Methodist Church and Village Church (ELCA).

Your support for Interchange will make a difference in the lives of people struggling with hunger and nutritional needs in Milwaukee. We invite you to get involved in Interchange in a number of ways:
