A northern Door County food pantry is subject to the challenges faced by other pantries during the pandemic. The Door of Life Christian Church Pantry in Sister Bay is open 24 hours a day/seven days a week. It gets food donations monthly through the USDA's Farmers to Families program. Pantry Director Heidi Penchoff is seeing greater than expected demand at times. She also says the generosity of residents and hunters offer some optimism.
Penchoff says no food donation is too small to help neighbors in need. Door of Life Church is located on Highway 42 in Sister Bay.
