Businesses step up for families

Spanning the entire peninsula, small businesses are doing their part to make sure families are covered for meals during the extended break from school. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction shows all four mainland Door County school districts and two of the three Kewaunee County school districts offering free and reduced meals to at least 40 percent of their students. Ebert Enterprises in Algoma was approached by North Water Bakery and Deli to donate the milk for the free bag lunches being distributed in the city. In Sturgeon Bay, Sonny’s Italian Kitchen has offered to prepare lunch for free for 50 local families. Just north of Ellison Bay, Uncle Tom’s Candy Store owner Heather Laughlin is coordinating Corona care packages, which features her pancake and oatmeal mixes as well as products from other local businesses like Bea’s Ho-Made Products and the Sister Bay Piggly Wiggly. She says now is the time to support your neighbors.

Area school districts are also in contact with families about delivering free breakfasts and lunches while class is out of session.
