The Kewaunee County Food Pantry serves several hundred people monthly who struggle to keep food on the table. Those who come to the pantry at 1528 Sunset Avenue in Algoma will likely meet Ken Marquardt. He’s the pantry’s president. It’s become Marquardt’s second career. After 25-years in Paper Converting in Green Bay, he retired and was persuaded by his wife to volunteer at the pantry. Marquardt started stocking shelves and worked his way up to president of the pantry. He says it’s easy to see that his efforts and those of other volunteers and donors are making a difference.
Feeding America estimates one-out-of nine Wisconsinites struggle with hunger. If you’d like to volunteer to help Ken Marquardt and others make a difference through the Kewaunee County Food Pantry, you can log on to email@example.com or call (920) 487-3663.
