Donate Food to Share Jesus’ Love
Join Victory as we partner with a dozen area churches for MobilizeMKE, an opportunity to share the love of Jesus with the people of Milwaukee. We’ll collect food donations from 2:00-6:00pm, Monday through Friday (April 27-May 9).
How You Can Mobilize

We will provide all on-site volunteers with gloves for your safety. We do NOT have the ability to provide face masks. Please bring your own. We also suggest wearing comfortable shoes.

COVID-19 has caused a 35-50% spike in the number of people needing the services of food banks in Metro Milwaukee. This pandemic has also forced the cancellation of many food drives, multiplying the food crisis our neighbors are facing right now. These food pantries tell us they anticipate seeing an even greater need in May.
Working with a dozen other area churches, our goal is to feed 100,000 people by donating 120,000 pounds of non-perishable food. From April 27 through May 9, several area churches will collect food items to donate to area food pantries.
