(LaPorte, IN) - Free meat was going like hotcakes in LaPorte today. The giveaway began at 10 a.m. at the Salvation Army. Capt. Chris Karlin was hoping to have enough frozen meat until 3 p.m.
But, after the first hour, Karlin said all of the meat and frozen French fries would probably be gone by noon.
Karlin said about 150 vehicles had passed through during the first hour of the giveaway. At 11 a.m., he said there was a line of about 50 vehicles extending all the way to Monroe St.
He says some of the meat from the Food Bank of Northern Indiana was given away because there wasn’t enough room in his freezer to hold all of it.
