Audubon, IA (December 1, 2022) - AMVC Management Services recently donated 200 pounds, or approximately 800 servings, of ground pork to the Audubon County New Opportunities food pantry. The pork will be distributed to area residents through their monthly food boxes.
Over the last few years, New Opportunities has continued to see a rise in the number of families requesting food. "Meat is an expensive item to purchase, so having this pork in their monthly pantry will make a big difference," added Ashley Schmidt, New Opportunities Coordinator. "Donations like these make it possible for us to continue supporting families in need."
Henningsen's Meat Processing in Atlantic, IA, processed the pork and generously donated $100 of the processing fee. AMVC employees Kate Dentlinger, Brynn Blomme, Margarita Zuniga, and Craig Riesgaard delivered the meat to Schmidt.
"As pig farmers, we are committed to providing a safe and nutritious protein source for consumers and know how important it is to a well-balanced diet. As community members, we do what we can to support our local communities and help put pork on the table for those in need. Filling the pantry's freezer with ground pork is one way we can show our support for our local communities," said Sophie Hansen, AMVC public relations specialist.
AMVC is proud to support organizations like New Opportunities. In addition to pork donations, AMVC annually covers the building rental fee for their Mobile Food Pantry program. The Mobile Food Pantry program supports about 85 Audubon County families, distributing food every other month.
