Community Foundation DeKalb County Awards $2,500 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry

The grant provided by the Foundation will pay to process about 2,050 pounds of donated large game and livestock – providing almost 8,200 more meals through area hunger-relief agencies to residents in need within their communities. For DeKalb County, we are partnering with Pettisville Meats, D&D Meat Processing, and Community Harvest, to ensure residents have access to this nutritious protein. Over the last year, this program has given almost 8,300 pounds of meat within DeKalb County – providing over 33,000 meals! This meat was given to and distributed by Community Care Food Pantry, Serenity House, DeKalb Community Impact Corp., and Quiet Knight Inc. Community Harvest Food Bank received and distributed an additional 14,600 within its 9-county service area, including DeKalb County!
