About St. John Paul II Parish Food Pantry

The pantry is located at 3329 S. 10th Street on the south side of Milwaukee and serves approximately 100 households once a month on Saturday mornings.

Guests are provided with one bag of nonperishable food. They select their own food and have their bags packed by the pantry’s workers. Most guests speak Spanish. Many are unemployed and looking for a job, are on disability, or do not earn a family-supporting wage. Guests live within church boundaries on the south side of Milwaukee and/or attend church or its schools. Based on donations, the pantry may provide extra food, clothing, personal care or other items. Also, they notify guests about resources available in the community, including English instruction, energy assistance, nutrition, and legal advice.

The parish’s Elizabeth Ministry provides emotional and prayer support to guests each month.

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
