There is a good reason why you have not seen long lines at Door County food pantries during this time of uncertainty. Eight local operations teamed up to form the Door County Food Pantry Coalition back in May in order to have a coordinated and sustainable response to the needs of the community. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says their teamwork has produced great results.
NEW Radio, Inc. and its virtual animal sale sponsors Renard's Cheese, Salmon Meats, Marchant Foods, Ebert Enterprises, Portside Builders Greenstone Farm Credit Services, Rio Creek Feed Mill, Flanigan Distributing, Jerseyland Dairy, and TNT Dynamite Grooming, purchased two pigs, a lamb, and two turkeys from area youth to donate to the Door County Food Pantry Coalition, resulting in hundreds of pounds of meat for area families. The next Farmers to Families Food Box distribution is August 12th at First Baptist Church in Sister Bay.
