Following the purchase of a market heifer during the Cowley County Fair 4-H/FFA Market Livestock Auction held at the Winfield Fair Grounds on Aug. 1, Cowley College donated nearly 700 pounds of meat to Manna Ministries in Arkansas City and the Winfield Community Food Pantry on Thursday. The College began purchasing cattle from local 4-H members and donating the beef to local food pantries in 2010. The Winfield Community Food Pantry is housed in the Grace United Methodist Church apartments just north of the main building of the church. The pantry is dedicated to assisting the people in northern Cowley County who are in need of quality service, useable food items, and a nurturing and caring atmosphere. Families coming to the Food Pantry must complete a referral form, have a picture ID, as well as have proof of a Winfield area address, and meet the income guidelines.
