Kewaunee County organizations partner on November food drives

You can play a role in addressing food insecurity issues in Kewaunee County. Algoma United Methodist Church, the Kewaunee County Democratic Party, the Kewaunee Optimist Club, the Kewaunee Rotary Club, and the county’s local school districts are joining together to host a trio of food drives on Saturdays in November. Feeding America-partnered food banks are still seeing item distribution at 55 percent above pre-pandemic levels as the number of people facing food insecurity issues rises to 42 million. Jodi Parins from the Kewaunee County Democratic Party says food security is not a partisan issue.

The organizations will hold their food drives on November 6th at the Luxemburg Pharmacy, November 13th at Nicolet National Bank’s location in Kewaunee, and November 20th at Algoma Elementary School. Proceeds will support the Kewaunee Storm Snack Pack, Algoma School District’s Weekend Backpack and Wolf Den programs, and Algoma UMC’s Grace in Action. You can bring non-perishable food items, individual snacks, local grocery store gift cards, or cash donations.
