I want to update all you generous people who have helped out the Food for Life program. You help the four food pantries in Union County with meat for those in need of protein for their diets to help them maintain a healthy food supply.
The meat processing businesses who process these donated animals for us have their schedules full until late 2021. We have had to turn down donations of animals because of this.
We do have some money in our banking account that we can buy meat for these food pantries, so that is what we will do. Shirley R. Ide is the Food for Life treasurer and her address 1715 W. Prairie St in Creston. She pays for the meat that we buy from the grocery stores for this purpose.
You are such generous people here in Union County. We will try to keep furnishing meat as long as we can. Thank you for your support.
Ruby M. Stephens and all the members on the Food for Life committee.
