Partnership with Second Harvest ‘Like Butter’
Jul 20, 2022 (Westby, WI)
Oh, the things you could do with a pallet of Westby Creamery sweet cream butter! That said, Westby Creamery is proud to know that its butter will go to people facing food insecurity right here in Wisconsin.
Emily Bialkowski, the Creamery’s sales manager, had the chance to visit Second Harvest Food Bank’s Madison warehouse July 18. The organization serves a 16-county territory in southern Wisconsin and works to bring equal access to healthy, affordable and diverse food. Second Harvest recently received state and federal grant dollars to purchase food made locally – like Westby Creamery dairy products.
These purchases help the Creamery’s small family farms, while the butter helps those experiencing challenges with grocery expenses. “The partnership with Second Harvest tackles something very important to the Creamery’s employees and farmer-owners, which is the ability for all people in our community to have access to the nutritious foods we make,” Bialkowski said.
Westby Creamery is proud of its ongoing partnership with Second Harvest as it helps meet the community’s hunger-related needs and continues the Creamery’s mission of supporting the community. To learn more about Second Harvest, visit https://www.secondharvestmadison.org/.
