Cousins Subs, Bucks donate $16,700 to Hunger Task Force

Cousins Subs and the Milwaukee Bucks teamed up to raise $16,700 through their Block Out Hunger campaign during the 2020-2021 season.

On Friday, Aug. 20, team members from Cousins Subs presented Hunger Task Force with a campaign check and volunteered to help sort food at the Volunteer Welcome Center, located inside Hunger Task Force’s new headquarters in West Milwaukee.

The Block Out Hunger campaign just wrapped up its sixth season. It pledges that for every block the Bucks tally during the regular season, the Cousins Subs Make It Better Foundation donates $50 to Hunger Task Force to help fight food insecurity across the state. This season, the Bucks completed 334 blocks for a total of $16,700 donated to Hunger Task Force to purchase nutritious milk for the nearly 50,000 Wisconsin families it serves.
