Food banks across the state frequently have to refuse large donations of meat because of a lack of proper and safe storage.

The donation of 120 freezers to charities around the state will help alleviate the problem, and make sure food does not go to waste.

Farm Credit Mid-America and CoBank donated the freezers.
