Semester’s end means charitable donations to local pantries

Dan Jacques from A’viands Food Service shares word that UW-Green Bay made the most out of the dining plan’s bulk sales drive in May. Through the staff assistance of A’viands and the University Union, students and their parents elected to donate $2,762 worth of food that is being made available to the hungry of Brown County. Five different charities — Campus Kitchen, Campus Pantry, Manna for Life, Paul’s Pantry and Freedom House — are benefiting from the year-end food plan contributions. Jacques and Tammy Swanson from A’viands say they “would like to personally thank everyone involved in collection, organizing and next week’s delivery…  This would not have been possible without Sarah Johanski, lead retail supervisor, who handled the ordering, organizing and sorting of all the items collected.”
