Food insecurity is on the rise in Kewaunee County, so the Kewaunee County Democratic Party (KCDP) has coordinated with local school districts, the Algoma United Methodist Church and the Kewaunee Optimist and Rotary Clubs to host three Feeding Families food drives in November. The project will benefit students in the Kewaunee Storm Snack Pak and Algoma’s Weekend Backpack and Wolfden programs, as well as families served by the Algoma United Methodist Church’s Grace in Action ministry.
Drop off donations of nonperishable food items, individual school snacks, gift cards to local grocery stores, checks or cash Nov. 6 at Luxemburg Pharmacy, Nov. 13 at Nicolet National Bank Kewaunee and Nov. 20 at Algoma Elementary School, all 9 am – 12 pm.
“We are always looking for ways, as an organization, to help out in the communities,” said Jodi Parins, a member of the KCDP’s executive committee. “Many of our members work with various programs in the county, and they’ve witnessed just how problematic access to nutritious food is for area families. Going into the holiday season, the existing resources get stretched to their limits. A countywide food drive helps ease that burden and helps our families.”
