Every year, more than a million Hoosiers go hungry—many of them children and seniors.
That’s why we’re teaming up with Gleaners and Midwest Food Bank to take action and fight hunger with our “Pack the Pantries” campaign.
Money is the non-perishable item that food banks really need. Just $1 can provide up to 4 meals and buy the equivalent of $12 in food. Financial donations create flexibility by allowing food banks to buy in bulk at wholesale prices.
How can they put that money to use?
- $10 provides 40 meals
- $25 feeds a family of 4 for a week
- $50 provides 200 meals
- $100 feeds a family of 4 for a month
You can donate at the following websites:
