An Irish-American group donates meat to local food pantries every year to feed thousands of people.

OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) — “The Irish came here hungry — we don’t want anyone else to experience that,” members of the Ancient Order of the Hibernians said as the group made a winter donation.

The Irish American Cultural Organization donated just under two tons of protein to four food pantries in the city area, including the New Vision Homeless Veterans Shelter, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, the Stephen Center, and the Heart Ministry Center.

“I would say protein is very hard to get right now, especially with inflation and grocery store prices,” said Jacqueline Dumas of the Heart Ministry Center. “We see them today. Protein is definitely essential for all people to move forward, which is why I would say this donation is one of our most important annual donations.”

She says what they got today will feed more than 3,000 families this month. Dumas also says they won’t be able to continue to feed families without donations, and the need continues to grow.
