FOOD PANTRY HOURS

Tuesdays: 4 – 6 PM

Wednesdays: 10 AM – 12:30 PM

Fridays: 1:30 – 4 PM

The Bay View Community Center’s Emergency Food Pantry serves those living in 53207, 53221, 53235, and 53215. We strive to tackle food insecurity with our Emergency Food Pantry and Fresh Food Access Initiatives.

Food insecurity is a condition that leads to hunger, often as a result of poverty, unemployment, chronic health conditions, racial discrimination, etc. Bay View Community Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, ability, or national origin. We want to help serve as many people in the community as possible. 

For more information call us at (414) 482-1000.

Currently, we are operating as curbside service. This means that you can simply pull up in our loading zone (the front of the Center), remain in your car, and a staff member or volunteer will come out to you as soon as they can. 

Masks are NOT required. Simply just have an ID and proof of residence on hand. 

When you arrive:

  1. Pull your car into the loading zone in front of the building on Oklahoma

  2. Please be patient as you wait for a staff or volunteer member to come to your car

  3. We’ll ask for your name, address, and food preferences (Have your ID and proof of residence ready to show us)

  4. After they write down your requests, remain in your car. We’ll load the groceries for you!

DO NOT VISIT THE PANTRY IF YOU ARE SICK. YOU MAY SEND A PROXY.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CAR, COME TO THE FRONT DOOR.
