Community members and businesses continue to pitch in to address food insecurity in our area, as Farm Credit Services of America presented two checks to the Cat and Pup Pack backpack programs last week.

The first Farm Credit check given to the Cooperative Ministries Weekend Backpack Program Wednesday was a $2,000 grant award that the backpack program had applied for previously, but there was more.

FCSA presented a second check of $3,500 as a gift to the program aimed at helping kids and their families with weekend food needs.

Backpack program representatives say FCSA office staff also pitches in by helping package food items for the children at least once a month, as well as acting as the programs’ recycling crew, and are always on call if an extra hand is needed.
