Friedens Community Ministries
Friedens Community Ministries is a non-profit organization whose mission is to maintain a food pantry and distribute food to those in need. The Coggs Center pantry provides emergency food supplies to individuals and families who were not able to immediately get food stamps. Despensa de la Paz serves people from a neighborhood on the south side. Friedens also develops programs and services to meet the needs and improve the quality of life for the disadvantaged in our service area.
The ministry is supported by the Southeast Wisconsin Association of the United Church of Christ, by numerous Roman Catholic parishes, by other local churches, by generous individuals, and by many non-profit agencies in the Milwaukee area. Friedens Community Ministries receives support from the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and the Hunger Task Force.
