Brad and Melissa Seiler of Hay Hooks Farm recently gave Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry $5,000 to be used to serve La Porte County residents.
Proper nutrition is vital to the growth and development of children and the health of all Hoosiers. That is why protein, an important component of every cell in the body and one of the most important nutrients for brain and body development in children, is so important! Sadly, it is also the hardest commodity for food banks to obtain.
“That is why we are giving a call out to all the hunters out there this deer season! YOU can help feed the hungry in your community by simply donating an extra deer! Our goal is to provide this protein-packed meat to hunger-relief agencies within Indiana because getting groceries at local food banks and pantries guarantees healthy meals for families when they need extra help. This effort aids in reducing food insecurity and empowering people by getting them back on track to hunger-free, independent living.” said Debra Treesh, Executive Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry. Eastside Meats works hard for La Porte County AND does all the processing at a reduced rate so that funds like this go so much further. This donated meat is given to and distributed by Food Bank of Northern Indiana and other local hunger relief agencies – providing nutritious meals to La Porte County families in need!
