Farmers to Family Food Box events return

For the first time since August, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Door County Food Pantry Coalition are teaming to help provide healthy meals for residents. According to the USDA, over 100 million food boxes have been distributed nationwide as a part of the $4 billion Coronavirus Food Assistance Program. Door County families were able to participate in the program in June, July, and August. Christine Henkel from the Door County Community Foundation says it has been a great partnership between the coalition and the USDA.

The USDA has also been lending a hand to some local school districts, providing free breakfasts and lunches for students through the end of the year. The Farmers to Families Food Box events are taking place from 4-6 p.m. at Sturgeon Bay’s John Miles County Park on October 14th and the old Shopko building on October 21st in Sister Bay.
