The first USDA Farmers to Families Food Box distribution in Kewaunee County of 2021 is scheduled for Thursday (Feb. 25) at the Kewaunee County Food Pantry, 1528 Sunset Ave., near the Algoma Industrial Park. 

Kewaunee County Food Pantry President Ken Marquardt estimates that 500 boxes will be available for families in need. The last event in December saw 500 boxes handed out within two hours. The distribution of the boxes is expected to include meat, cheese, milk, fresh fruits, and vegetables.

The Farmers to Families Food Boxes are available to anyone in Kewaunee County, with a four-box limit per vehicle. No registration is needed, and pickup will start at 10 a.m. Thursday until all boxes are gone.
