(La Porte County, IN) - Some of the farm animals at this year’s La Porte County Fair are being used to help feed the hungry.
According to La Porte County Farm Bureau, local businesses and non-profits partner in the effort. More than 20 food pantries and soup kitchens are receiving meat from animals raised by 4-H youth.
The animals were purchased during the 4-H livestock auction at the fair last month.
Officials say about 3,000 pounds of beef, pork, lamb, and goat meat were processed by Sims Meat Processing in Kingsbury for the feed the hungry effort.
