Haul Out Hunger: Southern Central Iowa Community Action Program Wayne County
“In the summer it’s especially hard to keep our shelves stocked,” said Tammy Trenary of Southern Central Iowa Community Action Program (SCICAP) in Wayne County. “We get an excess of canned goods and cereals it seems, but never meat like this. We have to buy everything out of pocket which can get really expensive, really fast.”
Located in Corydon, the Wayne Co. SCICAP serves 60-70 low-income and food insecure families.
“We distribute loins based on household size in an effort to make them stretch as much as possible,” explained Tammy. “Meat is a luxury and funds are not usually available for this quality of meat, so we feel very fortunate.”
According to Tammy, the majority of loins donated today will be prepared on the grill or in a crockpot, but several families rely on the recipe booklets our Haul Out Hunger team provides for some delicious ideas.
“These loins are very large so most families can stretch them into several meals,” she explained. “The recipe ideas help make sure those meals are super delicious!”
In total, our team delivered 72 pork loins in Corydon today which will provide local families in need with 1,728 servings of pork.
