Outpost Gives Back
Outpost Gives Back
Outpost is a champion for fostering environmental and agricultural sustainability, hunger relief, cooperative development and volunteerism. Through partnerships, programming and events, our cooperative spirit builds a better community for all.
We're proud to be more than just a grocery store. Since our beginning, Outpost has worked to help build our community through sponsorships, food donations and grass-root partnerships. It’s simple really, when you help. You get back a lot more than you give.
Environmental and Agriculture Sustainability
Outpost supports organizations that are creating long-term sustainability and agriculture policies. The interest earned from the Co-op Community Fund will be the financial catalyst behind this effort. Learn about this year's group.
Hunger Task Force
Outpost and Hunger Task Force have been partners since the late 1990's. We share their common goal of ending hunger in our cities. Outpost has created a number of programs to help them achieve that goal. With Hunger Task Force, all food and services are provided free of charge to local area emergency food pantries. Look for these programs in stores throughout the year.
Friedens Food Pantries
Outpost has been a participant and supporter of Friedens Food Pantries' annual Empty Bowls fundraiser since they began hosting this long-time community event in 2022. After the event, Outpost continues to sell handcrafted bowls made by local artists to collect funds that directly support the work of Friedens' four Milwaukee food pantries. Learn more about Friedens Food Pantries.
Food For Health
Located in the heart of the Harambee/Bronzeville neighborhoods of Milwaukee, Food For Health is Outpost's newest community partner. Their mission is to provide free medically tailored meals over a 12-month program, combined with weekly wellness coaching, to underserved communities. Learn more about Food For Health.
Cooperative Development | Co-op Community Fund
In 2006, Outpost Natural Foods and the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation joined forces to establish the Outpost Co-op Community fund. This fund supports the development of co-ops nationwide while at the same time gives back to local non-profit organizations. Read more.
