The Door County Food Pantry Coalition (feeddoorcounty.org) sincerely thanks the Rotary Interact high school club and the Sturgeon Bay Noon Rotary Club for their generous contributions to the food pantries across Door County. Rotary Interact donated $1,500 to the Door County Food Pantry Coalition, and the Sturgeon Bay Noon Rotary Club donated $1,099 and applied for and received a $2,599 matching district grant.
The funds totaled $5,199 and were used to purchase canned tuna, toilet paper, hand soap and toothpaste. These items were then distributed to the eight Door County food pantries that are part of the coalition: the WICHP Food Pantry on Washington Island and the Shepherd of the Bay, First Baptist Church, Door of Life, Stella Maris, Feed and Clothe My People, Lakeshore CAP and Holy Name of Mary food pantries.
Rotary is a service organization whose purpose is to provide humanitarian services and advance goodwill and peace around the world. The Rotary Interact club helps youth between the ages of 12 and 18 to develop key leadership skills while instructing them about the value of Service Above Self. The donations that these two groups made to the Door County Food Pantry Coalition reflect their commitment to the Door County community.
The Door County Food Pantry Coalition is a partnership of the community’s food pantries, United Way of Door County and the Door County Community Foundation. The coalition’s aim is to provide support for people struggling during the global pandemic and economic recession. The coalition is not paid for by the government. It is able to exist only thanks to the generosity of organizations such as Rotary Interact and the Noon Rotary Club.
