LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Indiana Packers Corporation is making its largest donation to Food Finders Food Bank ever.

IPC pledged 25,000 pounds of fresh pork to Food Finders. The donation includes various cuts of meat from premium pork to bacon and ham.

Director of Marketing for Indiana Packers Curtis Hansen said their partnership with Food Finders just makes sense.

"This is fun but more important, it's meaningful, it really is a significant thing. Food Finders is a tremendous group of people here, they do amazing things for Indiana," said Hansen.

The pork will go a long way in meeting the protein demands that Food Finders tries to meet. President and CEO of Food Finders, Katy Bunder, said the donation will be able to nourish people in all the counties they serve.

"It's sometimes hard when you don't have enough money you end up purchasing food that is empty calories and this will be a source of protein and really nutritious food and so we're really grateful for that," said Bunder.

The donation will not be provided all at once, the meat will be delivered periodically throughout the year.
