Monroe Soil and Water Makes Donation

The Monroe Soil and Water Conservation District was recently recognized on the Monroe County Beacon website for a donation to the S.O.M.A. Manna Food Bank in Woodsfield, Ohio. More than 100 pounds of meat were donated to the food bank from the hog we purchased at this year’s Monroe County Fair.

From the Monroe County Beacon:

“We just wanted to help the community. We kind of killed two birds with one stone… We supported 4-H and the less fortunate of the county,” said Katie Day, Program Manager at Monroe Soil and Water. Darrell Craig, the food pantry manager, said the donation was exceptional due to the protein it will provide those the pantry serves.

The full article can be read on the Monroe County Beacon website.
