A state-wide, interactive map is available for residents seeking food assistance in Indiana.
The map was developed by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, in partnership with the state’s food banks, the Indy Hunger Network and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry. The online map can be accessed here.
Food pantries and meal sites are included on the map. Residents needing assistance can pick up groceries to prepare and use at home while meal sites serve packed meals, ready to take home and eat.
Meanwhile, the Northern Indiana Food Bank is looking for donations to help community partners is having a supply of food for those in need. Officials with the organization say that they anticipate a 50 percent increase in demand above the 6.1 million pounds of food distributed by the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana and partner agencies last years. About $140,000 in additional funds are needed to sustain the need.
