“Meat is usually the hardest thing for us to provide clients in need,” said BJ Hemmingsen of the Ruthven Community Food Pantry. “Protein is expensive and if we do have anything, it’s usually canned tuna. A donation of pork like this is very rare and we are just so appreciative.”
Located in the basement of Zion Lutheran Church, the Ruthven Community Food Pantry is a small, but mighty force that helps local community members in-need.
On our first visit, Haul Out Hunger unloaded 10 cases of pork loins, enough to provide 2,160 servings of protein-packed pork.
"This donation is just such a blessing," exclaimed BJ. "We just can't quite believe we are fortunate enough to receive this pork. The clients we support are going to be overwhelmed in the best way possible."
