Kewaunee County Food Pantry to give away turkeys

Thanksgiving is still a month away but the Kewaunee County Food Pantry has been planning the annual turkey giveaway for several weeks.  President Ken Marquardt says the five-year tradition has grown in popularity and families have been signing up for the past two months.  Smaller families have an option for chicken instead of turkey if they prefer.



Marquardt estimates that families have signed up for 125 turkeys and 25 chickens so far.  Families need to sign up by this Saturday.   He notes that the facility has seen more families utilizing the pantry of late.  The Kewaunee County Food Pantry is located near the Industrial Park in Algoma and is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30 am until 1 pm.
