Lincoln Financial Foundation has awarded Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry a grant totaling $6,250 to fund processing fees on donated large game and livestock, serving Allen County residents.
With the spread of coronavirus these numbers continue to rise with the loss of income for many people. Food banks, pantries, and soup kitchens continue to work to protect the most vulnerable and under-served in our communities, at the same time as food donations drop or staff and volunteers are unavailable, due to the measures rightly put in place to slow the spread of infection. We have no doubt that these hunger relief agencies will continue to face increased demand. The number of Hoosiers in need has risen dramatically. Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry is partnering with Indiana farmers and 85 meat processors statewide to fill a void by getting meat to those in need during this critical time.
