NCF Hosts "Meals from the Heartland" Fundraiser and Meal-Packing

This past weekend, Newton Correctional Facility Staff and Offenders volunteered their time to help
make 50,000 meals for Meals from the Heartland.


A lot of planning went into this event starting off with raising a total of $10,000 dollars. Half of the
money was raised by staff and offender fundraisers – the other half was donated by a local church.


225 offenders participated by signing up for shifts which ran from 7-11am. NCF had 30 Staff members
assist as well as 8 community volunteers. 25,000 meals will be distributed in the Jasper County area, the
other 25,000 will be distributed by Meals from the Heartland.
