NORFOLK, NE - A church in Northeast Nebraska and a food stop known for its piggy puns are partnering to provide for those who provide for others.
 
Norfolk's Our Savior Lutheran Church and pork restaurant Uncle Jarrol's teamed up to show gratitude for nurses and doctors on Thursday morning.
 
"The folks in healthcare certainly have been heroes," said Pastor Lee Weander. 
 
After a prayer and prep, 21 volunteers got to work with a goal to put together 700 meals for healthcare workers.
 
 
This is the second time Jarrol's has done this, and they're not done yet, with another 100 planned for the evening. 
 
Owner Jared Rogers owner said it took him a couple of days to cook the 140lbs of meat. 
 
The meals were hand-delivered to Faith Regional Health Services. And while the kindness encouraged healthcare employees, it also boosted the morale of Uncle Jarrol's, which has been suffering through the pandemic.
 
There's more to be made -- the church intends to pack 1200 meals through next week at Goodie's in Battle Creek and a restaurant in Stanton.
