Support our Operations
You can contribute toward crucial part-time staff and sustain our solid management infrastructure while we make giant strides toward bringing our vision into reality.
Support our Building Fund
You can contribute towards the transformation of the building we own debt-free at 2461 W. Center St. including the construction of our Welcoming Center on First Floor.
Support our Aquaponics Project Fund
Our mission to provide food security to the residents of 53206 and beyond depends, in part, on our ability to grow nutritious vegetables year round. Our Aquaponics System will give us that. MSOE students designed the prototype that you can see in our building at 2461 W. Center St. We are now ready to build the full-scale, functioning system. Along with the impact on food production, the Aquaponics Project will be an employment hub.
We will be serving guests of MBHS in a sit-down dining area furnished from the original Watts' Tea Room. A longtime friend of MBHS, Martha Watts generously donated tables, chairs, dishes, glassware and more from the iconic tea room.
Our kitchen will be named for community organizer Reuben Harpole and his wife Mildred, who worked for more than 50 years on dozens of initiatives to better the living conditions of Milwaukee's Black Community. “Reuben, alongside Mildred, has dedicated his life to empowering Milwaukee residents and uplifting our communities,” says U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore. Nutritious, culturally appropriate meals for our guests will be prepared here.
