This is the old 440th Air Force Base
Directions: Take I43 south out of Milwaukee and EXIT Airport/College Avenue (Exit 318). Don't be fooled - it's a VERY LONG exit ramp to College Avenue. Turn left (east) onto College Avenue and travel approx 1 mile. Look for the jet at the left side of the road. Turn left into the drive to the security gate. You do NOT need to check in with security. Proceed through the gate and travel straight (north) until you reach the second building on the right. Parking is free!

"What do I do at a typical food sort?"
You will sort non-perishable food items by categories; check for expired, damaged or unlabeled food items; label, move and stack boxes; and make boxes using a tape gun. Due to the active nature of food sorting,all volunteers should be able to stand on their feet for long periods of time. A fifteen minute break is included. Outpost will provide refreshments.
Did you know? Hunger Task Force distributes food to food banks, homeless shelters and soup kitchens FREE of charge?
A fabulous group of co-operators! Thanks food sorters!
