About the Pantry

The Holy Assumption Food Pantry (West Allis) was established in 1981 when longtime parishioners noticed that several members of the congregation could use assistance with groceries and nutritional needs. Parishioners partnered to keep a closet in the back of church stocked with the basics for anyone who sought support.

Over the years the concept and the physical pantry itself have grown. Assistance is currently provided for many in the West Allis-West Milwaukee community. Physically, the pantry includes multiple rooms in a former school. Clients may stop in once every 30 days, but are encouraged to visit whenever support is needed. Approximately 500 community members are served monthly receiving food for five days. Fortunately, because of an association with the West Allis Farmers’ Market, fresh, healthy produce is provided during the growing season.

The pantry is staffed by a volunteer director and a minimum of 40 parish and community members, all of whom are volunteers. Contacts are made, donations and pickups are arranged, packages are assembled throughout each week. This ensures all is ready for Pantry’s open hours on Thursday evenings and Friday afternoons. Contributions, partnerships, smart shopping, and hard work have allowed this community outreach to continue for nearly 40 years.

Thanks in advance for your generosity!

Migrant Ministry

In our migrant community, just like others, many have lost their jobs. However, unlike most of us, many migrants and their families will not be receiving a stimulus check, even though many pay into our income tax system. The Migrant Ministry is supporting the Migrant MKE Food Drive to help these families not go hungry. We are collecting non-perishable food items such as flour, oil, beans, rice, cereal and canned goods. These can be either dropped off at 13320 W North Lane, New Berlin, or if you need it picked up, please contact Joanna Boey at 262-853-4033 or Send us a message
