The McLeod Emergency Food Shelf was selected for the 2017 Wayne Quinn Award at the Form-A-Feed Professional Dairy Conference at Treasure Island Resort and Casino on January 18th, 2018. Each year, the Form-A-Feed Outstanding Dairyman Award winners select a person or organization from their community who they would like to ‘pay it forward’ to with this monetary award. This year, Skyview Dairy chose the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf.
In an attempt to help as many people as possible with this monetary donation, Skyview Dairy identified that real dairy products were the most needed item at the food shelf, specifically families with young children. “I want to ensure sound and good nutrition for growing children at the food shelf that includes the benefits of dairy products,” explained Garrett Luthens, owner of Skyview Dairy.
Lennie Alders of the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf was present at the Form-A-Feed Dairy Conference to receive the Wayne Quinn Award.
The Wayne Quinn Award is not only a monetary award designed to give back to the community, but it is also an award to honor the memory of the late Waynn Quinn, a former Form-A-Feed employee who lost his life to cancer in August 2010.
