Tighten Your Budget Belt Through Prairie Land Food Program From Robert Gainer, LL 774 Community Service Committee The community service committee of Local Lodge 774, IAMAW, has started a reduced-cost food delivery program through Prairie Land Food, a Kansas-based non-profit organization. “This is a way our committee could help not only our members but everyone in our community,” said Bob Gainer, a member of the community service committee. “This is open to the public and we need a lot of help to spread the word.” Other members of the committee are Andre Triplett, Charlotte Washington, Jacquie Sazama and Martin Eddy. The program offers a low-cost monthly nutritious grocery package. The basic “Prairie Pak” includes an assortment of frozen meats, fresh fruits and vegetables for $20 (plus $3 transportation fee). Addon selections of meats or fruits and vegetables are available for a small additional fee. Prairie Land Food is not a government-funded program and there are no income guidelines. The program is participation-driven: The more people who participate, the greater the cumulative buying power. Some of the proceeds have found themselves going back into communities in the form of development grants, and plans are underway to start a scholarship program for Kansas youth. For more information or to arrange a presentation to your organization, contact me at or by phone at 316-838-8289. The contact at Prairie Land Food is June Glasgow,, or call (800) 998-9436. “Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or if you would like to attend our meeting,” said Gainer, “and we would also be glad to have anyone show up on distribution day to volunteer.” “We want this to become a big deal!”
