Nearly 90,000 residents in northern Indiana struggle with food insecurity including nearly 29,000 children.
Throughout the month of September, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana is asking the greater community to get involved. They can do so by learning, committing and speaking up about ways to end hunger in the area.
That includes mobilizing a food drive at your workplace, church, club or school. Most of the items needed include boxed breakfast cereal; boxed macaroni and cheese, au gratin and mashed potatoes; canned beef stew and ravioli; canned chicken and tuna; canned fruit-apple sauce, mix fruit, and can soup.
You can also help restock the Food Bank’s shelves by spending and morning or afternoon volunteering at the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.
The Food Bank serves St. Joseph, Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Marshall and Starke Counties.
