MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — On Wednesday, December 28, food distributions were held for those in need during the final days of 2022.

“It’s Christmas and New Year and it’s time for kids and young people to go out, so I thought I’d give them a little food to help them get through the week,” Milwaukee 15.th District Alderman Russell Stamper said:

Stamper partnered with Aldo. Chambers and Rainey work with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, Pheonix Investors, and the Crivello Family Foundation for drive-thru food distribution.

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin provided 192 boxes of food and perishable bags of over 40 pounds each.

Dozens of volunteers worked to distribute the food to people and no questions were asked.

Milwaukee firefighters also helped with the distribution.

“You know, we always support people on their worst days. But this is actually positive and you can give back and see the smiles,” says Milwaukee Firefighter ‘s Local 215 President Eric Dorn said.

For one man, it was great to be able to drive over, get some free food, and see the smiling faces of the volunteers.

“Reaching out is a kind, human, good gesture. I feel that way,” said Frank Locust. “I am so grateful for this day and everything. [for] feed America. ”
