INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s Family of Farmers presented beef, poultry and dairy products to fill the refrigerator and freezer of Habitat for Humanity homeowner Joseph Olumullah of Indianapolis.

Olumullah’s new home, dubbed “The House that Agriculture Built,” was built in just 14 days at the 2013 Indiana State Fair with the help of 27 ag-related sponsors and hundreds of volunteers. A deep freezer also was donated by Indiana’s Family of Farmers and will serve as storage for the frozen foods.

Beef, dairy and poultry products were included in the donation and provided by farmers from around the state. Poultry farmers also donated enough turkeys to provide two other Habitat recipient families with Thanksgiving birds this year.

“We are grateful that Indiana’s Family of Farmers has supported our Ag Build partner family for the third year in a row,” said Ted Mosey, corporate and faith relations coordinator for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis. “This food will help get the family on their feet right away, and we couldn’t be happier for them.”

During the 2013 Indiana State Fair, visitors could register to win a freezer thanks to Indiana’s Family of Farmers. Jack Rubak of Indianapolis was the winner of this year’s giveaway.

Along with partnering with Habitat for Humanity at this year’s fair, Indiana’s Family of Farmers donated 5,200 pounds of food to Indiana food banks through Feeding Indiana’s Hungry to match the projected weight of the World’s Largest Popcorn Ball displayed at this year’s fair as part of the Year of Popcorn.

The cash equivalent of $8,372 will be used to purchase food — enough for 4,333 meals — to feed Hoosier families.

Indiana’s Family of Farmers works to promote the work of farmers across the state and is made up of 18 organizations that represent the agriculture industry. Visit for more information.
