Pantry gives care packages to newly released prisoners

The Kewaunee County Food Pantry and the Kewaunee Police Department are working to help those recently released into the community from state prisons.  The police are now referring former prisoners to the pantry for care packages to help them start over.  Ken Marquardt, Kewaunee County Food Pantry President, says the packages just meet some basic needs.

 

 

 

In the six weeks that the program has been in operation three former prisoners have been helped by the care packages.  Marquardt says, as far as anyone at the pantry or police department knows, this may be the first program of its kind.
