Cowley College donates 933 pounds of meat
Following the purchase of an Angus steer from Brooke Jackson
of Arkansas City during the Cowley County Fair 4-H Market Livestock Auction
held at the Winfield Fairgrounds on Aug. 1, Cowley College donated 933
pounds of beef to Manna Ministries in Arkansas City.
Manna Ministries is a faith based food pantry housed at the First Baptist Church, located at A Street and Central. They welcome all donations and hold a distribution generally on the last Saturday of each month. The food pantry continues to grow as they service the southern half of Cowley County.
