Greenfield, Indiana – Thanks in part to Hancock Health personnel, more than 700 families in Hancock County, east of Indianapolis, will have food this Thanksgiving.

To bag the groceries they obtained, volunteers convened at the Hancock County Fairgrounds on Tuesday. They’ll donate to The Lisa Muegge Feast of Plenty, which provides Thanksgiving meals for underprivileged families.

Jenn Wells, assistant vice president of customer experience and brand strategy for Hancock Health, said, “We also know many people need to take additional food home to care for their families and loved ones during not just the holiday season, but all the time. So, these bags are filled with the necessities: toilet paper, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter jelly, beans, rice, you name it, and they will be able to take that home as well.”

About a thousand requests for groceries, according to the organizers, were made.
