Buddenbergs acquire refrigeration unit for Decorah Food Pantry

The Decorah Community Food Pantry has just received some new refrigeration capacity thanks to local dairy farmers, Bruce and Julie Buddenberg. The industrial grade refrigeration unit was provided through a Community Relief Grant setup by Midwest Dairy, an organization representing 6,500 hardworking dairy farm families throughout the Midwest. “Bruce and Julie applied for a community relief grant on our behalf and we are fortunate to receive one,” said Rachel Hanson, Decorah Community Food Pantry Board Member. “This unit will help keep the families our food pantry serves nourished with dairy and other perishable items during this unprecedented time.” From left: Rachel Hanson, Josie Buddenberg, Michelle Buddenberg holding Gage Buddenberg.
