An encore to the successful free food event from last month is back this Wednesday in Sturgeon Bay. The Door County Food Pantry Coalition announced that the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program will be held in Sturgeon Bay from 4:00 until 6:00 pm at the Sunshine House ReSale parking lot on East Walnut Street. The last event helped to feed 192 households. Dakota Londo of the Door County Food Pantry Coalition notes that each box will feed a family of four or five and that there will be more than double the availability of food.
Londo added that recipients should remain in their vehicles while picking up the food boxes at the Sunshine House Resale location. Cars can start lining up at 3:45 pm on Wednesday and recipients should wear a mask.
The Kewaunee County Food Pantry in Algoma is also hosting the Farmers to Families Food Box program from 8:30 -10:00 AM on Wednesday.
