Lauren Geistkemper, UW-Extension Dietetic Intern and UW-Green Bay students covered the food pantries need during the pandemic for the Door County Daily News. “Since the start of the pandemic, nearly 20% more people in Door and Kewaunee County have become eligible for FoodShare. At the same time, many food pantries are experiencing a decrease in donations from grocery stores and manufacturers that have helped them in the past.”
UW-Extension Dietetic Intern Lauren Geistkemper was recently featured in Door County Daily News article about a growing need at food pantries. Since the beginning of the pandemic, demand has risen in Door and Kewanee counties for needed household and food items. The article lists common food pantry items needed.
