Join Outpost to help end hunger. Volunteer for a morning at The Farm!

Hunger Task Forceoperates a 200 year old historic farm in Franklin. Each year, during the growing season they grow and harvest hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh vegetables and fruit - all of which is donated FREE to local food pantries, homeless shelters and soup kitchens in Milwaukee.

Farm work is not possible without the help of hundreds of farm volunteers each year. Activities CAN include preparing new plants in the greenhouse, planting, harvesting, fish hatchery work, weeding and more!

Please keep in mind the following:

  • Rain or shine!
  • Activities will involve a lot of bending and stretching, must be in good physical condition.
  • Dress appropriately for working outdoors according to the day's weather forecast. Layers are recommended, as is clothing that allows maximum flexibility.
  • A hat is highly recommended when working outdoors.
  • No open toed shoes or sandals are allowed.
  • Bring along portable water bottle that you can carry along.
  • Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Chaperones must also fill out a volunteer application.


Light refreshments will be provided by Outpost! Carpool if you can!
