Delay doesn't dampen demand for food box program

A shaky start to the Farmers to Families Food Box event at the Kewaunee County Food Pantry on Wednesday did not hamper the distribution of food to people in need.  President Ken Marquardt says that wintery weather conditions in the morning delayed the arrival of the truck carrying 450 food boxes by two hours.  He says people waited patiently in their cars starting at 8 am as the line stretched over a mile along the roadside to the parking lot.



Marquardt noted that they were able to accommodate just about everyone in line with food boxes except about ten vehicles that received extra milk that was available.  The distribution of the 450 food boxes was the most-ever in Kewaunee County and was completed before noon.  The Door County Food Pantry Coalition was scheduled to distribute 400 boxes at the John Miles County Park in Sturgeon Bay on Wednesday as well.
