Jake’s Feed and Garden Hosting Food Drive

In Porter County, Jake’s Feed and Garden is encouraging the community to help them in supporting local food pantries. The store says February is the hardest month for birds to find food — and, it is also a hard month for local food pantries to remain full. The food drive at their store on South State Road 49 south of Valparaiso through February 27th is supporting Kouts Pantry, Hebron Pantry, Hilltop Pantry and Christian Pantry. Customers can bring donations of food, personal hygiene items and assorted household items to the store, and on Wednesdays this month can also bring in perishable items.
