Auburn, Indiana – American Legion Post 97 has contributed $2,000 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry’s “Meat” the Need Initiative, helping to ensure that hunger relief agencies serving food-insecure residents within DeKalb County continue to have access to nutritious meat.
Post 97’s contribution will cover the processing cost of approximately 1,400 pounds of donated livestock and deer – providing over 5,500 more meals through local hunger relief agencies.
“We are so grateful to American Legion Post 97 for continuing to support our efforts in responding to the needs of those in the community facing hunger. A meal provided to a person in need means reduced hunger and increased disposable income because they can spend less on food. Right now, that is so important.” said Debra Treesh, Executive Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry.
