This week’s Farmers to Families food box distribution will once again cover three different sites. Sturgeon Bay, Sister Bay, and Washington Island will all hold distribution events on Friday. Washington Island’s will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. while the Sister Bay and Sturgeon Bay events will begin at 4 p.m. It marks the first time the partnership between the Door County Food Pantry Coalition, the Door County Fire Chiefs Association, the USDA, and Feeding America has been able to bring back food boxes to the area since March 12th . United Way of Door County Executive Director Amy Kohnle expects the demand to be high because of the layoff.
The possibly last Farmers to Families food box distribution is April 23rd. Last week’s mask mandate ruling exempts the state from approximately $50 million in federal funding from the CARES Act for food benefits such as the Farmers to Families food boxes. You can find more information about the three distribution sites below.
