Joining Together to Feed Our Community
Thanks to a collaboration between the US Department of Agriculture, the Allen County Department of Environmental Management, and Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County, a food distribution endeavor has been realized this summer.
The program, which ran from June 11, 2020 through August 27, 2020, saw a total of 384,000 pounds of fresh produce being received and distributed through Associated Churches. The value of the distributed food was $645,000. The program was made possible thanks to the co-ordination of Jodi Leamon, Sustainability Coordinator for the Allen County Department of Environmental Management and her work with Food Rescue US.
