Feeding America's mobile pantry making stops in Sheboygan County Thursday

By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Oct 10, 2013

SHEBOYGAN - Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin's mobile pantry will be in Sheboygan County on Thursday.

The visit is a part of a month-long effort to give out healthy groceries to 12 surrounding counties.

Volunteers will be handing out reusable tote bags full of healthy groceries at both the Family Resource Center in Plymouth and Zion Covenant Church in Sheboygan.

"The tote bags will be filled with chicken and pasta with fresh vegetables and simple, delicious recipes for cooking the ingredients," the group explained.

They will also be offering free blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) screenings, and families with children will receive a free Sesame Street Food for Thought kit to learn how to eat healthy on a budget.
