The food pantry at Feed and Clothe My People of Sturgeon Bay is humming for this time of year. Receiving Personnel Coordinator Ashley Madson says demand has roughly doubled over the past six weeks. Donations from the community have met the surge in need, says Madson.
The pantry is following social distance guidelines. Those in need place an order over the phone and pick it up from a cart outside the pantry without interacting with staff. Carts are wiped down before and after an order is completed. Madson says only a core group of volunteers is working for now, but she hopes the organization will be able to take on new help soon.
