Phoenix Investors Teams Up with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin to Bring Mobile Food Pantries to Southeastern Wisconsin Neighborhoods | Crivello Family Foundation

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is thrilled to announce a new partnership with local commercial real estate firm Phoenix Investors (“Phoenix”) in which Phoenix will sponsor mobile food pantries in areas of high need throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

This initiative provides meals for kids during a critical time for many,” said Patti Habeck, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin President & CEO. “Our pantry partners see an increase in need over the summer once schools let out. Summer hunger is real, and we need the help of our generous supporters to fill the gaps.”

Schools being closed for the summer poses a unique challenge for those who rely on school meals as a significant source of nutrition for their children—when school is out, many of Wisconsin’s youth don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

In Wisconsin, 427,380 people are facing hunger—and of them 142,050 are children. “We’re honored to help our communities by making food readily available, especially for children who rely on lunches provided at school,” said Frank Crivello, Phoenix’s Chairman & Founder. “

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is the perfect partner for such a meaningful initiative.”Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin invests time and resources into expanding the organization’s mobile pantry services while food insecurity is on the rise. Additionally, the ending of several emergency allotments and the public health emergency have created a drastic increase in need in neighborhoods where Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is already experiencing record attendance at their pantry distributions.

The donation will fund mobile food pantries in Racine, Waukesha, Ozaukee, and Dodge counties. The pantries will distribute food boxes to the community at least once per week.

The mobile food pantries can be found at the following locations:

  • Watertown High School | 825 Endeavour; Dr Watertown, WI
  • Champion Field Park | 425 W Jefferson St; Oconomowoc, WI
  • Washington Park High School | 1901 12th St; Racine, WI
  • Threshold Inc. | 2830 W Washington St; West Bend, WI

The Crivello Family Foundation is a 501(c)(3) as of July 2023 and is closely associated with the charitable work performed by Phoenix Investors.

Frank P. Crivello is a Milwaukee-based developer and Chairman & Founder of Phoenix Investors.
