Easter Baskets for the Hungry
Since 2007, Palermo’s has provided the Milwaukee community with “Easter Baskets for the Hungry” as part of our largest stewardship event of the year. Palermo’s employees and other volunteers annually team up with the Hunger Task Force to fill 1,500 large baskets with enough food to feed a family of four for a week, plus an Easter dinner.
This effort is organized each year to honor the spirit of our founders, Gaspare and Zina Fallucca, whose commitment to fighting hunger in our community continues to motivate and inspire us. With nearly 22% of all Milwaukeeans living in poverty this annual event is important to the Palermo’s family as a way to give back and spread joy into our community. Over the years we’ve sponsored this event, we’ve provided over 13,000 baskets and over 500,000 pounds of food to families in the Milwaukee community.
