Waushara County Food Pantry director addresses White River Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District

Marty Lee from the Waushara County Food Pantry spoke at the Labor Day meeting of the White River Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District. She discussed ways the two groups can work together to promote their common goals of caring for the land, water, and people of Waushara County. Marty, the director, was invited to accept an anonymous donation of $300 to the Pantry. Also shared at the meeting was the growth of the Pantry, which is set to distribute over two million pounds of food to the community this year. “We are so grateful to our community for its support, and to all the volunteers who share their talents,” Marty said, “as we source, move, load and unload, stock, and distribute all of those pounds of food, mostly by hand.”
