"We have everything:" New food pantry in Milwaukee changing the idea of what a food pantry can be

MILWAUKEE -- A new food pantry, which will be in the Milwaukee area once a month, is changing the general idea of what a food pantry can be.

It is called the "Client Choice" food pantry.

The developers say it focuses on letting people go through items and take what they want for free -- instead of giving them a pre-packed bag.

"New Global Destiny" is the ministry with more than 200 churches around the world putting up these pantries in various cities.

Founder Bridget Outlaw said they hope to help 300 people each day they're open.

"People are happy. They're like 'please come back to Milwaukee.' So we're coming and doing this once a month. On the first Saturday of every month. We'll have clothes, food, toys. We have Pampers, strollers. We have everything," Outlaw said.

The pantry is currently located at the Pleasant Hill Church near Fond du Lac and Capitol Drive.

Outlaw said that location is only temporary while they try to find a permanent location.
