The Olive B. Cole Foundation has given $10,000 to fight food insecurity in NE Indiana

The Olive B. Cole Foundation has given $10,000 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry. These funds will pay to process about 8,600 pounds of donated large game and livestock within DeKalb, Noble, LaGrange, and Steuben County. This meat will provide almost 35,000 more meals through area hunger-relief agencies to residents – fueling children and families in need! Partnering with 82 meat processors statewide, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry gives approximately 575,000 pounds of meat annually to an average of 450 hunger relief agencies throughout Indiana. Our goal is to provide this protein-packed meat to hunger-relief agencies within Indiana to assist those in need of additional food services. Getting groceries at local food banks and pantries guarantees healthy meals for families when they need extra help. This program works to ensure that these agencies have meat, allowing them to provide fresh nutritious protein for hungry local families. This effort will help build stronger, healthier communities by meeting a basic need – reducing food insecurity and empowering people by getting them back on track to hunger-free, independent living.
