There are many hard-working Hoosiers who try and support their families but the always rising cost of living makes their struggle even more difficult. Seniors are usually living on a fixed-income and often have to make the difficult decision between paying for medication, housing, and food. 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. The LaGrange County REMC Operation Round Up Program recently awarded Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry $1,000 to be used to serve LaGrange County residents. The $1,000 in funds will pay to process about 900 pounds of donated large game and livestock – providing 3,400 more meals through area hunger-relief agencies to residents in need within their community.
There is NO cost to donors!
