On Friday, December 18, 2020, The Milwaukee Health Services, Inc. (MHSI) hosted their “5th Annual Holiday Dinner and COVID-19 Safety Kit Giveaway,” at the Issac Coggs Heritage Health Center, 8200 West Silver Spring Drive.
In an effort to help feed those in need this Christmas, MHSI, MHS Health Wisconsin, Social Development Commission, Feeding America, Molina Healthcare, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and All of Us provided groceries for two thousand (2,000) dinners to Milwaukee residents.
Due to COVID-19, MHSI observed proper safety measures by making this a drive-up only event. Feeding America reports that nearly 520,000 Wisconsinites don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In Wisconsin, 1 in 11 people face hunger.
