Dinner is on the house for those in need thanks to over a dozen different entities in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Beginning on Monday, the Door County Meals Cooperative will be providing dinners among other items at six different locations throughout the area between Algoma and Baileys Harbor. With schools, businesses, and nonprofits all chipping in to help, Program director Adam Peronto says they have developed a great partnership to get the cooperative off the ground to serve at least 15,000 meals a week for at least 10 weeks.
Registration is not required to participate in the donor-supported program and it is available to those struggling during this time Monday through Friday from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Breakfasts and lunches have been available at many of the local school districts for students in Door and Kewaunee Counties since they closed their doors two weeks ago. Monday marks the first day Gibraltar Area School District will distribute free meals at locations in Egg Harbor, Baileys Harbor, Fish Creek, and Sister Bay.
