INDIANAPOLIS — Hundreds of Hoosiers who are struggling to put food on the table got a little help Tuesday.
The Indianapolis Urban League continued its food box pickup program that’s been helping up to 800 families a week. Volunteers distributed the boxes at a drive-thru site at the corner of Indiana Ave. and Blackford Street. Each family picked up a box of food and a bag of canned goods.
“The struggle is real. Come out. Take advantage of these food supplies, because there’s no reason why any family, and particularly a family with kids, should go without food.”Tony Mason, President & Chief Executive Officer, Indianapolis Urban League
Most families have someone who either lost a job or their wages were cut.
The Indianapolis Urban League is giving out food again next Tuesday, June second at the corner of Indiana Avenue and Blackford Street.
