Three days a week the flow of vehicles comes through the Beaver Dam Middle School parking lot with food given to the Beaver Dam youth. Lately, a little extra has come home with those who receive breakfast and lunch.
Stephanie Young, director of food services for Beaver Dam Unified School District and Taher Food Services, said food was distributed starting at 4 pm. with vehicles flowing through the 500 Gould Street parking lot to take breakfast and lunch for a week for those aged 18 and under.
Young said the extra contribution was due to donations for programs from businesses and individuals. Cars that take or deliver food have been asked if they want dental supplies and on one occasion this past week they were given the opportunity to have a bag of vegetables from Bird Eye in Beaver Dam.
“We received it in February as part of our healthy school that provides cooking,” Young said. “We will share it with the community because we cannot use it fully at this time. They can benefit from it. “
Thursday, Saputos Cheese in Waupun donated 500 pounds of grated cheese offered to people who were lining up to eat.
Other donations entered will be used to buy about 200 gallons of Sassy Cow milk from outside Columbus and 200 pounds of varied brick cheese from the Kraemer Wisconsin Cheese in Watertown.
