Eighteen miles south of Harley-Davidson’s headquarters sits the Hunger Task Force Farm, a unique 208-acre urban farm in a suburb of Milwaukee County that grows a wide variety of crops to ensure hungry families have access to culturally appropriate foods by rounding out pantry food options with fresh produce rarely found on shelves. In 2018, the Hunger Task Force delivered more than 9 million pounds of food to serve Milwaukee’s hungry.
Harley-Davidson has been a strong supporter of the Hunger Task Force Farm since 2012, when The Farm was established as one of the Harley-Davidson Foundation’s Signature Programs. In 2018, the Harley-Davidson Foundation announced its continued commitment to helping Milwaukeeans in need with a renewed three-year grant.
Support from the Harley-Davidson Foundation has allowed The Farm to implement a strategy of sustainable agriculture, which includes systems for cover cropping, drip irrigation, crop rotation, conservation tillage and integrated pest management. Help for those in need has continued while using environmentally friendly practices that contribute to long-term sustainability being achieved. Harley-Davidson employees logged 762 volunteer hours at the Hunger Task Force Farm in 2018, with many teams taking time to give back during the harvesting season.
