FoodShare recipients are finding more money in their accounts. And, that's creating a bit of a dilemma for the Kewaunee County Food Pantry and others. People who had been coming to the pantry for food are now buying more groceries at local markets. Pantry President Ken Marquardt says his organization now has more frozen meat than people to give it to.
FoodShare benefits have been temporarily increased from January through June of this year as part of the coronavirus relief package adopted in December 2020.
