Meals cooperative meeting demand

Instead of telling people to come earlier, the Door County Meals Cooperative is just making sure they are cooking more food to serve. Last week the partnership served approximately 600 meals a day across its seven sites in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Volunteers would often run out of food before its 5:30 p.m. wrap-up time and now has long lines waiting for pick-up before its 3 p.m. start. Program Director Adam Peronto says in order to make sure it meets the demand of the less fortunate in the community, it will be turning out 750 to 800 meals a day out of its kitchen at the Boys and Girls Club in Sturgeon Bay. Thanks to the support of its volunteers, partners, and local businesses, Peronto says they are beginning to do even more than just distribute meals.

Peronto says people can support their efforts by donating anything from food and money to offset their costs to small toys to bring an extra smile to a child’s face.
