NEW Cooperative Donates Pork Loins
To local food pantries for families in need
May 4, 2020 – NEW Cooperative in partnership with the Land O’ Lakes Foundation, recently donated 3,000 pork loins to 23 local food pantries in their trade territory.
“With the coronavirus epidemic putting greater demands on food pantries and NEW as an agricultural cooperative where food is our business, we felt it is important to donate to help those families in need during this unprecedented time.” said Gary Moritz, Communications/Foundation Manager.
NEW Cooperative purchased the pork loins from the Prestage Farms plant in Eagle Grove and with the help from Decker Trucking out of Fort Dodge, we were able to get the pork loins to a central location for distribution. The pork loins were delivered to 23 food pantries throughout the area.
