Door County food pantry concerned over shutdown

A Sturgeon Bay food pantry is concerned about running out of food in the case of a prolonged government shutdown. With federal employees not getting paid and the potential for the SNAP program to run out of funding, food banks may become more in demand in the coming months. The SNAP program is funded through February but there is no sign of the government shutdown ending. Estella Huff is the director of operations for Feed and Clothe My People and she is concerned they may not be able to provide all the food necessary in a couple of months. Feed and Clothe My People does not take any government money, but Huff is worried there will be too much demand.

 

 

Feed and Clothe My People takes donations of food or money at any time. If you are unable to make it to the store in Sturgeon Bay, you can call to set up a delivery at 920-743-9053.
