The Twin Lakes Area Food Pantry would like to thank the community for its on-going support, especially through these difficult ecomonic times. Everyone’s been so wonderful to us, year after year, all the way along the line; from the local businesses who help with financial resources, to the organizations that raise funds and collect food for us, on to the citizens who not only give of their time — but also their wallets. Since we are housed in the lower level of St John’s Catholic Church’s rectory in Twin Lakes – rent-free – we are afforded the luxury of spending all of our donations directly on food for our clients. Last year we served 1,236 households; consisting of 2,210 adults and 1,490 children. In addition to government commodities and donated food, we also purchased $56,000 in food items, allowing us to hand out over 98,000 lbs of food! Donations are always welcomed and appreciated! Non-perishable food items such as peanut butter, jelly, cereal, soup, spaghetti, sauce, and noodles are staples in any home. Non-food items include personal hygiene items such as bar soap, toothbrushes, deordorant, diapers, sanitary napkins, toilet paper, as well as laundry detergents and dish soaps. The Twin Lakes Area Food Pantry serves all eligible Kenosha County residents who live west of I-94. Applicants are asked to bring proof of residency, income, and identification for each member of the household. Hours are Tuesdays/Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to ┬ánoon and the second Tuesday evening of each month from 7 to 8 p.m. (Use Holy Hill entrance). Regards, Melissa Papacek, President.
