WAFER of La Crosse receives new commercial cooler for fresh produce

A statewide grant is benefiting WAFER, giving the food pantry more space and a better display for fresh produce.

A new commercial cooler with glass doors was delivered to WAFER Tuesday morning. Food pantry workers hope those they help will be more likely to take fresh produce home if it’s within view, which this cooler will be able to do.

It’s one of more than 50 throughout the state, made possible thanks to a $700,000 donation from United Healthcare to Feeding Wisconsin.
