Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry Receives Aid from FSB
Friday, August 14, 2020

LAGRANGE, IN – Farmers State Bank recently donated $1,000 to Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry to aid in hunger relief efforts. These funds will be used to pay processing fees on livestock with the meat being given to agencies serving food-insecure residents within LaGrange County and Steuben County.

According to Feeding America, over 880,000 people in Indiana are struggling with hunger - 274,000 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. These agencies continue to face increased demand.

This gift from FSB will allow Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry to pay for the processing of approximately 870 pounds of donated livestock, which will provide 3,500 more meals through local hunger-relief agencies. On average, the cost of this donated meat is about $1.16 per pound, which is only $.29 per meal!
