An organization in Kewaunee County, that is already helping those in need with food and supplies, is making sure Thanksgiving dinner will include a turkey for all families this year. The Kewaunee County Food Pantry has expanded its program in November this year to give every patron a free turkey. President Ken Marquardt explains why the number of free turkeys to be given away could double this year.
Marquardt estimates that about 75 turkeys were given away last year and that the pantry helps an average of 140 families monthly but provided for 165 in October. The Kewaunee County Food Pantry is open Monday and Wednesdays from 11 am until 1 pm and is located on Sunset Avenue in Algoma.
