M.E. Raker Foundation awards $2,500 to support Allen County residents

The funds provided by the Foundation will pay to process about 2,100 pounds of donated large game and livestock – providing over 8,600 more meals through area hunger-relief agencies to residents in need within their community. “Lengerich Meats, E&L Farm & Processing, Feders Meats, Integrity Meats, and D&D Meat Processing, have worked hard for Allen County over the last year AND did all processing at a reduced rate so that we are able to make funds like this go so much further. This partnership led to the donation and processing of over 21,000 pounds over the last year. This nutritious protein was given to and distributed by Community Harvest Food Bank, Fort Wayne Rescue Mission, Shepherd’s House, VA Food Pantry, St. Joe Hessen Cassel Church, and The Pantry at Purdue Fort Wayne – providing 85,300 more meals to Allen County individuals, families, and children in need!” shared Amber Zecca, Fund Development Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry.
