In an effort to accommodate people who qualify for the Kewaunee County Food Pantry program, the organization will be opening its doors on one Wednesday evening a month. Starting in April people will be able to pick up necessities from 4:30 until 7pm on one Wednesday of the month. President Ken Marquardt says the added hours will make it easier for those who may work during the day. He says the pantry serves many families in the area.
Marquardt estimates that the Kewaunee County Food Pantry gives away over 12,000 pounds of food a month. The pantry is hosting their annual Rummage Sale Extravaganza this weekend at their Algoma location from 8 am until 6 pm through Saturday.
