Students And Food Pantries Benefit From Lake Country Dairy Donations
Schuman Cheese-Lake Country Dairy in Turtle Lake, Wisconsin announced it is donating more than 15,000 pounds of dairy products to area schools and food pantries, as part of its ongoing effort give back to the community.
“The team at Lake Country Dairy always takes great pride in making high-quality dairy products that our customers love, but right now, we want to show Lake Country Dairy’s support to our local communities, at a time when many families are in need” said Gary Gosda, Plant Manager.
Lake Country Dairy staff are providing 625 gallons of milk to families in the School District of Cumberland, 350 gallons to Barron Area School District families, 300 gallons to Turtle Lake School District families, as well as 200 gallons directly to other area families. It was also important to Lake Country Dairy that all its employees also received milk and cheese.
“We know everyone is impacted by this crisis, and we appreciate what our employees do for us every day,” said Gosda.
Later this week, the Lake Country Dairy team will be distributing 2,200 pounds of its Fontal, a soft, mild, creamy cheese made with milk from local farmers, via schools and the Turtle Lake Food Pantry.
“No matter the crisis, no one should go hungry in this country,” said Gosda. “Lake Country Dairy employees are honored to deliver nutritious milk and cheese to those facing food insecurity. We’re happy to be here to help. We also want to share our support for all Wisconsin dairy farmers in these difficult times. We appreciate what they do every day, because each and every one of them is the backbone of Wisconsin producing the best dairy products in the country.”
