The Community Impact Fund held at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne recently awarded Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry funds to aid in hunger relief efforts in the form of a grant totaling $10,000. These funds will be used to pay processing fees on livestock and deer donated to agencies serving food-insecure residents with Allen County.
This grant will allow Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry to pay for the processing of approximately 8,600 pounds of donated livestock – providing 34,500 more meals through local hunger-relief agencies. “We are so thankful to have a partner like the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne, who is committed to helping us respond to the needs of our communities facing hunger. A meal provided to a person in need means reduced hunger and increased disposable income and right now, that is so important.” said Debra Treesh, Executive Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry.
