Grace Welcome Center Food Pantry was created in 2019 as a direct response to our immediate neighbors crying out for food assistance. Our goal is to ensure that no families living in this food desert of Uptown and Columbus Park go hungry.Grace Welcome Center website
Grace Welcome Center runs a weekly food pantry distribution, and a twice weekly hot breakfast program. Additionally, the Center offers free clothes, showers and hygiene kits to those in need in the Kenosha area.
2020 UPDATE: The effects of the pandemic on the Grace Welcome Center Food Pantry were striking: demand at the pantry tripled in the first three weeks of COVID, and more than quadrupled by summer 2020. The center anticipates having to increase hours and staffing on a permanent basis to serve all of those in the community who need their assistance.
