The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation awarded Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry a $1,500 in grant to assist in providing more meals for those in need.
Hunters or farmers donate livestock or wild game to the non-profit organization that forwards it to an inspected butcher. The meat is placed into family-size packages and distributed to food banks across Indiana.
“We are very excited about our “Meat” the Need program and pleased that this Foundation is continually making an investment in our community,” Debra Treesh, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry executive director, told B-96.9 radio. “The grant provided by the Foundation will pay for the processing of approximately 1,150 pounds of donated large game and livestock, which will then be distributed to area hunger-relief agencies – providing over 4,600 meals to residents in need within our communities.”
