The donation of Austin Market canned luncheon loaf and Hormel Compleats microwave meals will provide a source of shelf-stable protein for the people of the area.

Hormel Compleats microwave meals feature chicken, beef or turkey as well as flavorful vegetables and pasta, potatoes or rice.

Convenient for relief efforts, they are a source of protein, do not need to be frozen or refrigerated and can be microwaved in the tray in 60 seconds. Additionally, these meals are fully cooked and can be eaten straight from the package for those without access to electricity.
