Oconomowoc businesses, students deliver cartloads of food to pantry

City of Oconomowoc - People in Oconomowoc have come out in full force in recent weeks to help the Oconomowoc Area Food Pantry. The help couldn't have come at a better time as pantry organizers Bill and Lois Jackson said November is the food bank's busiest month, followed by December.

Recent drives that have helped stock pantry shelves include:

True Blue Day: Five carloads of nonperishable food items and $800 in cash was donated after the drive run by Snyder Insurance Agency that invites businesses to wear blue jeans to work in exchange for donations to the pantry.

Stuff the Bus: Meadow View students with the generosity of the community were able to donate 10 full shopping carts of food and $325.90 after their stuff the bus fundraiser.

Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat: Oconomowoc High School’s chapter of the International Thespian Society collected 1,588 pounds of food .

This week you have another chance to help the pantry and do some shopping possibly for the holidays. Beverly Bartel, owner of Beverly Designs in downtown Oconomowoc is offering 40 percent off items in her store in exchange for donations to the food pantry. The more you bring in to donate, the more you can save, she said.
