Letter from the Director-May

Let me start this letter with my disappointment and frustration that the “Stamp out Hunger” postal worker’s food drive is not happening in Muskego this year. It has not happened since COVID and we were looking forward to reaping the benefits this year. Prior years have netted us literally over 9000 pounds of non-perishable items. This has provided many hours of volunteer opportunity for people in the community who want to help. Oh well, hopefully next year.

We had a very busy Easter with distributing 90 Easter baskets donated by Bethel Lutheran Church and approximately 75 hams donated by generous families.

Even though the thermometer hasn’t shown it, summer is right around the corner with the kids being off of school. We are always looking for mac & cheese and other easy meals when the kids are home. Our numbers of new families has gone up due inflation and the cost of food and fuel.

Many thanks to those in the community who donate food and write checks to keep our doors open. Please keep us in mind when you do your grocery shopping and drop a little extra in our barrels.
