The Milwaukee Bucks and Wisconsin-based Cousins Subs are taking the court for a third straight year to Block Out Hunger statewide. In honor of the Bucks 50th anniversary, Cousins will donate $50 to Hunger Task Force for every blocked shot the Bucks have this season! Follow along throughout the season to see how this triple threat is teaming up against hunger.
HOW TO GET IN THE GAME
This coming up March, you’ll have the chance to get in the game and Block Out Hunger in your local community. Simply donate three healthy nonperishable food items, like peanut butter, low sodium canned vegetables or low sugar breakfast cereal, at any Wisconsin-based Cousins Subs from March 1 – 31 to receive a special offer.
WHY HUNGER TASK FORCE
Hunger Task Force has been feeding local families with healthy food since 1974. As Milwaukee’s only Free & Local food bank—and Wisconsin’s leading anti-hunger organization—they are the perfect teammate to Block Out Hunger.

THE FACTS BEHIND THE BLOCKS
Each blocked shot is more than a defensive move on the court, it’s a healthy and nutritious meal for someone in need. Read the facts below to find out why the Block Out Hunger initiative is important on and off the court:
- In Milwaukee County, 35,000 people receive help from local food pantries, and 60,000 meals are served at soup kitchens and shelters each month.
- Two of every three children in Milwaukee—nearly double the national average—experiences hunger.
- Hunger Task Force provides a safety net of emergency food supplied to a network of 76 food pantries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters who, combined, serve nearly 50,000 people each month.
BRINGING FANS LOCAL FLAVOR - A LOOK INSIDE THE PARTNERSHIP
Cousins Subs joined the Bucks growing list of corporate partners during the 2015 season. Enhancing the fan experience, Cousins is serving its local favorites at its concession located at the concourse of the BMO Harris Bradley Center as well as awarding fans with coupons and prizes during home game activities.
Since the start of the campaign in 2015, Cousins Subs and the Milwaukee Bucks have raised a total of $29,665 and 10,137 pounds of food to support Hunger Task Force and pantries statewide.
Hunger affects thousands of people across Wisconsin. But we as a community have the opportunity to team up and work together to alleviate hunger and provide healthy, nutritious meals to those who need it most.
The Bucks greatly value corporate partners who are committed to helping those in need in our community. Cousins Subs' commitment to making a difference in Milwaukee- particularly in the areas of feed insecurity and hunger- is incredibly vital to many kids and families who live here. We are thrilled to move into the third year of the Block Out Hunger Campaign with Cousins Subs.
