A community effort Friday saw over 800 pounds of whitefish served at four locations in Sturgeon Bay to help feed those in need. Thanks to donations by Henrikson Fisheries, J & M Fisheries and Sonny’s Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria, the free meals were distributed with donations benefiting the Door County Meals Cooperative. One of the locations Friday was at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Pastor James Gomez explains why his church participated in Friday’s fundraiser.
Fish fry pickup locations on Friday included St. Joseph’s and Corpus Christi Catholic parishes in Sturgeon Bay, as well as Sonny’s. The Door County Meals Cooperative provides meals to people struggling to make ends meet during the COVID-19 health crisis. The Cooperative is currently distributing 800 dinners a day to children and adults that are being produced by the Boys and Girls Club.
