“We recognize that many of our residents are struggling and need nutritious food, including protein, to stay healthy during this especially challenging time. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry have served our communities well for many years; we want to make sure they have the support needed to keep providing assistance to our local food partners,” said Mary Nielsen, President of the Crown Point Community Foundation.
This grant will allow Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry to pay for the processing of approximately 2,150 pounds of donated livestock – providing over 8,600 more meals through local hunger-relief agencies. “We are so thankful to have a partner like the Crown Point Community Foundation, 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.
