Grant provides food to rural pantries

The Marathon County Hunger Coalition, an initiative of United Way, recently wrote a grant to benefit the rural areas of Marathon County. The grant allowed the Coalition to bulk purchase over 12,000 pounds of food which was distributed to pantries in Mosinee, Edgar, Colby, Stratford, Spencer and Hatley. Deliveries were made by Coalition members and United Way staff last week.

One pantry volunteer wrote, "This is so awesome. It's food that we like to stock because we know people who come here use and need it. Thanks so much!"

According to JoAnn Janikowski, Community Impact Director at United Way of Marathon County, increasing the nutritional value of food available at local pantries is one of the goals of the Marathon County Hunger Coalition. She commented, "While food donations are always very much appreciated by all of the pantries, targeted food purchases like this one help provide those nutritionally rich foods that people need for good health. The Hunger Coalition is grateful to our grantor for making this possible."
