United Way of Allen County has contributed $10,000 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry’s “Meat” the Need Initiative, helping to ensure that hunger relief agencies serving food-insecure residents within Allen County continue to have access to nutritious meat.
“According to Feeding America, an estimated 48,900 Allen County residents regularly struggle with food insecurity – 16,520 of which are children. More than ever, families are struggling to buy groceries. Food banks, pantries and soup kitchens work to protect the most vulnerable and under-served in our communities and these agencies continue to face increased demand during these uncertain times.” Said Amber Zecca, Fund Development Director of Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry. “Proper nutrition is vital to the health of all Hoosiers. That is why protein is so important and sadly, it is also the hardest commodity for food banks to obtain, especially now.”
