“Our families are hungry and need this meat,” said Colleen Crouch, one of the volunteers at the Lyle Food Shelf. “But unfortunately it’s one of the more expensive items at the grocery store and they can’t always afford it, so this donation is going to be such a blessing for them.”
Located in Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, the Lyle Food Pantry works with the local school and churches to identify families in need of assistance. This small, but mighty food pantry has a lot of heart and receives support from the local Boy Scout troop and community fundraisers. While the number varies, at times the pantry has supported more than 15 local families.
“Simply put, we do not receive many meat donations,” explained Colleen. “These pork loins are not only going to provide a hearty meal, if not several, but they’re also going to provide an abundance of nutrients to the families that get to enjoy them. We are so appreciative.”
In total, our Haul Out Hunger crew donated 36 pork loins to the community of Lyle, bringing the daily total thus far to 576 pork loins. Thank you to Colleen and Donna Nelson for all you do to keep the Lyle Food Shelf up and running. Your hard work does not go unnoticed, and we are grateful for all you do to #HaulOutHunger in your community.
