We Support Agriculture (WSA), a group formed two years ago to defend and promote Nebraska's livestock industry, announced today it is donating $2,500 to the Food Bank of Lincoln's veteran's mobile food pantry program. WSA members are Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation, Nebraska Cattlemen, Nebraska State Dairy Association, Nebraska Pork Producers and Nebraska Poultry Industry.

The Food Bank of Lincoln has operated a mobile food pantry for veterans the last four months on the first Monday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the Lincoln Veterans Facility. The Food Bank of Lincoln estimates they serve 100-125 veterans and their families every month providing between 5,000 - 7,000 pounds of food.

The Food Bank of Lincoln can turn one dollar of donation into more than five dollars of food, so WSA's contribution will provide roughly $12,500 work of food for area veterans and their families.
