The Kewaunee County Food Pantry in Algoma has seen a sizeable increase in demand for families in the area, according to pantry president Ken Marquardt. With more families needing assistance due to layoffs during the COVID-19 crisis, pantries like the Kewaunee County Food Pantry are working to meet the needs of the community.
