Grant for Food Pantry Milk Purchase
A grant from the Community Wide Fund held at the M&M Area Community Foundation will the St. Vincent de Paul of Marinette’s Food Pantry meet the increased demand for milk this summer. The food pantry received three-thousand dollars from the Foundation to help supply more milk to families in need while school is out of session. Because it is one of the items least often donated, the organization plans to purchase around 1300 quarts of milk, which costs about $1500. St. Vincent de Paul will apply the remainder of the grant funds toward paying off a replacement truck for the food pantry.
