"All the hungry people in this county will no longer have to worry about where their next meal is gonna come from, we formed this partnership to make it efficient, make it effective, to make it a tremendous dignified experience for all the needy people right here in Elkhart County," says Milt Lee of Food bank of Northern Indiana.

The partnership will begin in the first quarter of 2013.
