The Door County Emergency Response Fund is making sure needy families in the area do not go hungry once the Door County Meals Cooperative ends its dinner program next week. Beginning in mid-March, the Door County Meals Cooperative served approximately 750 free meals daily at sites across Door County and Algoma. The program ends on May 29th when the Boys and Girls Club of Door County transitions its kitchen to serve 800 meals a day for the YMCA’s summer lunch program. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says the newly established Door County Food Pantry Coalition will help make sure there is no drop in support for those families in need by having them work together.
The Door County Food Pantry Coalition is made up of eight food pantries spread out from Washington Island to Maplewood.
