Three Indiana food banks are receiving 20 tons of macaroni and cheese.
Land O‘ Lakes donates 40-thousand pounds of dairy products in a different state each month.
August is Indiana‘s turn, for the first time in about two years.
Gleaners Food Bank CEO Cindy Hubert says the frozen heat-and-eat five-pound bags of macaroni and cheese are a good fit for the area, combining nutrition with a food people like to eat.
"For us, 20,000 pounds equates to about 12 or 13 thousand meals," says Hubert. "We figure a package of this will probably serve a family of four."
