Goelzer Investment Management has donated 250,000 meals to Hoosiers in need. To contribute to the food donation to Gleaners, the firm invites Colts fans to stop by Hurst Bean Field prior to the Colts game to drop off canned food. Drop boxes will be located at the entrance areas of the parking lot.
Why beans? A bean dinner is high in complex carbohydrates, protein and dietary fiber, helping to satisfy hunger because it is absorbed slowly. Beans are also high in calcium, iron, folate, and potassium.
“Hundreds of thousands of Hoosier families are still struggling to put food on their tables,” said Cindy Hubert, president and CEO of Gleaners. “In fact, our emergency food distribution has doubled since the economic crisis in 2008. In our 21-county service area in central and southeastern Indiana, 319,450 of our neighbors are hungry and one in five is a child.”
