The Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC Community Fund recently awarded Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry a grant to be used to serve residents in their service area, including the counties of Clay, Daviess, Greene, Knox, Lawrence, Martin, Monroe, Owen, Vigo, Putnam, and Sullivan.
The funds will help Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry pay processing fees for large game and livestock donations within these counties.
Founded in 2011, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry asks area hunters and farmers to take their large game or livestock to a participating meat processor
where the donation is processed, packaged and frozen.
Local hunger-relief agencies are contacted for pick up and distribution of meat back into the community.
