HAMILTON COUNTY (September 10, 2014) – The shelves are nearly bare at the Harvest Food Bank in Hamilton County.

According to our partners at The Indy Star, this happens every year in August and September.

Harvest Food Bank, which is located in Noblesville, is the largest emergency food provider for people in Hamilton County.

To make up for the lack of food, Harvest Food Bank must buy supplies with cash and gift card donations.

The Indy Star reports that the pantry hasn’t had a large donation since the Stamp Out Hunger campaign by the U.S. Postal Service in May.

A study published by Feeding America says that more than 27,000 adults and 11,800 children in Hamilton County don’t know from where or when then their next meal will come.

If you’d like to donate, you can drop off food at Jackson Fire Territory Hamilton County, 508 W. Main Street in Arcadia and Hamilton Town Dentistry, 14139 Town Center Boulevard, Suite 200.

Donations also are accepted at the Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursdays, 1605 N. 10th Street in Noblesville.
