Lakeside celebrates by donating food

As part of its 125th anniversary celebration, Lakeside Foods' New Richmond facility has donated 125 cases of canned vegetables to Grace Place in Somerset.

"We are very pleased to make this donation," said Mark Enter, general manager. "Grace Place does great work in our area and we're proud to be associated with such an outstanding organization."

Each Lakeside facility is making similar donations throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota during the big anniversary year.

The donations are in addition to the 125 pallets (the equivalent of seven truckloads) of canned vegetables donated to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, Milwaukee; Second Harvest Food Bank of southern Wisconsin, Madison; and Channel One Food Bank in La Crosse.
