United Co-op and Land O'Lakes make food pantry donation
Thirty-five food pantries will share a $38,000 donation.

Thirty-five area food pantries receive a much-needed boost this holiday season as $38,000 has been donated by United Cooperative and Land O’Lakes Foundation to provide food resources to rural communities.

“As a farmer-owned cooperative, we’re involved intimately in the development of crops and livestock used in the food system,” says David Cramer, United Cooperative president and CEO. “We know the importance of food for strong families, strong schools and a strong economy. We’re hopeful these donations help communities provide food to people who need emergency resources to feed their families.”

LARGE DONATION: The Living Hope Food Pantry in Fox Lake is one of 35 food pantries in Wisconsin sharing a $38,000 donation from United Co-op and Land O'Lakes. Volunteers at the food pantry include (from left) Joe Zamojcin, Donnie Wolc, Cindy Heller, Marvin Paul and Patti Searles.

The 35 Wisconsin food pantries listed below received a share in more than $38,000 provided by United Cooperative and Land O'Lakes Foundation to help fill their shelves with food this winter season.

“With these contributions, we can do a small part to aid hunger needs in our communities,” Cramer says.
