BUTTERNUT — It was a different kind of food pantry concept but organizers of the Butternut distribution site for Ruby’s Pantry say that in five years the community distribution now attracts hundreds of people for each monthly event.

The program distributes corporate overstock from the region to warehouses in Waupaca, and in North Branch, Minnesota, said distribution site leader Liz Emmer. From there the food is transported by truck to approximately 80 “pop-up pantry sites” each month.
