Ozinga’s Indiana Plants Collect More Than 600 Pounds of Food for Needy Families


Eleven Ozinga plants in Indiana teamed up this holiday season to provide food for needy families in their communities. Plants in Bremen, Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury, Plymouth, South Bend, Warsaw, Cedar Lake, Crown Point, Gary, Valparaiso and Wheatfield collected more than 600 pounds of non-perishable food items.  

Officials from the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana and Northern South Bend Indiana visited our Crown Point and South Bend plants to collect the donations on October 19. Ozinga coworkers received a tour of the food bank’s new 72,000-square-foot Merrillville facility as well. Our coworkers’ generosity will provide needy families with 300 meals this holiday season. 

“We are extremely grateful for the partnership we have [with Ozinga] and we hope for it to grow more so in the future,” said Food Bank of Northwest Indiana Events and Outreach Associate Riley Egan.

The food bank distributes 4.5 million meals each year.
