NEW BUFFALO, Mich. — The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians’ Four Winds Casinos are pleased to announce a donation of approximately 1,000 meals this week for those in need in northern Indiana and southwest Michigan. Many of the meals will be delivered through Feeding America. Each meal includes a whole ham, green beans, corn, au gratin potatoes and lemon bread.
Feeding America will distribute the Four Winds donation of food to food pantries, meal programs, and senior centers in Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties in southwest Michigan. In northern Indiana, Feeding American will distribute these Easter meals to soup kitchens and food pantries throughout St. Joseph County. Pokagon elders will also be receiving meals.
“The Pokagon Band has called this region home for hundreds of years. As part of this community, we’re proud to support Feeding America and their important work with area families who are in crisis,” said Matthew Wesaw, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. “Potawatomi people hold elders, children and women in high regard, and we are honored to give back in this meaningful way.”
