Pantry adapting to changes and demand

By Sara Miller, Student Correspondent

There are many charitable businesses around the area that are changing the way they operate. The Kewaunee County Food pantry is one of those. Their new procedures include pre-packaging boxes of items and handing them to the families outside of the pantry building, as opposed to allowing families to come in and choose what they want. Ken Marquardt, the president of the Kewaunee County Food pantry, describes differences he’s seen since the beginning of COVID-19.

This addition onto the number of families has increased the amount of items that the food pantry needs. Marquardt shares how people can help out.

With COVID-19 cases continuing to rise, Kewaunee County Food Pantry is still serving the county with help from many community members.
