Bringing Milwaukee's Best to Your Doorstep

Shelter-in-Style Kits

Just like you, we have been stunned by the emotional toll of social distancing and the growing economic impact of the pandemic. In addition to needing to support our own families, we have the desire to help the many small businesses that make our city a great one. While you can't get out to enjoy all that the city has to offer, we can bring Milwaukee to you.

Send a care package to someone you appreciate
These are great to show a neighbor, first responder, new-to-homeschooling parent or loved one that you’re thinking of them. The packages double as great self-care items too, so don’t feel guilty ordering for yourself!

Each care package was crafted to include products from some of our favorite Milwaukee vendors. These care packages are designed to help our partners continue generating revenue in a safe and sanitary way.

Method of Delivery
Some of our care packages are available via nationwide shipping, others are available for local delivery or local pick up. Shipping, delivery and pick up options are noted below. If you are selecting the local delivery option, we will deliver as far north as Cedarburg, as far south as St. Francis/Cudahy, as far southwest as Franklin, and as far west as Elm Grove or the very east side of Brookfield.

Approved Essential Products
Each of our featured partners fall under the Federal Food and Agriculture sector and therefore are essential. In the event that further restrictions would be placed on their ability to produce food, we will alert our buyers and provide refunds or an alternative delivery date/method.

Virtual Tour Experiences Included
Like we said, we will bring Milwaukee to you! After your purchase you will receive an invitation to a private Facebook group hosted by us – Milwaukee Food & City Tours. There, you will have access to videos narrated with historical commentary about area neighborhoods and local vendors showcasing their craft and passion for Milwaukee.

For those purchasing for their whole team, access will be provided to each recipient.
