Boxcarr Handmade Cheese Donates Uniquely Formulated Cheese

Boxcarr Handmade Cheese is doing its part to help the local foodservice and food bank operators in its community, including crafting a new unique cheese. Since March, the cheesemaker has donated about 700 pounds (or $9,000 worth) of this cheese each week to local food banks, in addition to providing free food boxes to unemployed foodservice workers.

Samantha Genke, Co-Owner and Head Cheesemaker, Boxcarr Handmade Cheese“It’s a mozzarella-type cheese made with yogurt cultures,” said Samantha Genke, Co-Owner and Head Cheesemaker. “It slices, it melts, and is very snackable!”

Boxcarr specifically formulated this cheese with a longer shelf-life in mind, changing the production of its new cheese in order to respond to how the market has been affected by COVID-19. The uniquely formulated cheese also helps support a local dairy farmer by dispersing his milk.

In addition to the above-mentioned efforts, Boxcarr has also made it a long-term goal to continue donating cheese by using the sale of the “Supporting Our Farmers Cheese.” For every three pounds sold, according to a press release, one will be donated to food banks, soup kitchens, and organizations to help offset costs.

Thank you to Boxcarr Handmade Cheese and other specialty producers for doing their part to help their local communities during this unprecedented time!
