Non-Profit Operations (Tour & Service Work) – Feeding America

April 25, 2017 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

The Logistics Council (TLC) of Milwaukee invites you to an operations tour and service work opportunity on Tuesday April 25th Feeding America Eastern America.  Our host will explain how Logistics processes help this vital non-profit meet its service mission.

Program Overview:

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is the state’s leading hunger relief organization, operating food banks in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley.  Together with over 600 members, Feeding America provides healthy and nutritious food to nearly 400,000 people annually.  Logistics are at the core of the organization where volunteers are truly the engine of the supply chain – sorting food donations and assisting with daily operations.  After a brief overview of the supply chain and processes, we will tour the facility and perform service hours by participating in a food sort.  Proceeds of the event will be split with Feeding America, and community service hours can be attributed to your organization.
