Community Foundation of White County awards $5,000

The Community Foundation of White County has awarded a grant for $5,000 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry’s “Meat” the Need Initiative to help ensure hunger relief agencies serving food-insecure residents in White County continue to have access to nutritious meat.

According to Feeding America, approximately 2,700 White County residents regularly struggle with food insecurity – 900 of which are children.

“More than ever, families are struggling to buy groceries. Food banks, pantries and soup kitchens work to protect the most vulnerable and under-served in our communities and these agencies continue to face increased demand during these uncertain times.” said Amber Zecca, Fund Development Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry.  “Proper nutrition is vital to the health of all Hoosiers. That is why protein is so important, and sadly, it is also the hardest commodity for food banks to obtain, especially now.”
