Kewaunee County Food Pantry is making an impact with about 150 families in the area on a monthly basis. Some 12,000 pounds of food is given away each month to families in need, according to Kewaunee County Food Pantry resident Ken Marquardt. He says the pantry is always in need of canned foods and other supplies.
The pantry can get between five to six pounds of food for every dollar donated, according to Marquardt. He says to accommodate families who may work during the day and still qualify for assistance, the pantry is now open the third Wednesday evening of the month from 5 until 6 pm. The Kewaunee County Food Pantry is located on Sunset Avenue in the Algoma Industrial Park area.
