Food Bank of Northern Indiana receives $115,000 in funding

The Food Bank of Northern Indiana will receive $115,000 from the Indiana Legislature to help feed Hoosiers, the Indiana State Department of Agriculture announced.

The funding is provided by the Legislature's biennial budget.

“Our member food banks continue to see clients in numbers well above 2019 levels. New and pressing challenges – including war abroad and inflation and higher costs of food, gas and other necessities – are impacting the ability of individuals and families, especially with lower incomes, to make ends meet. For any Hoosier to be unsure from where their next meal will come is unacceptable,” said Emily Bryant, executive director of Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.

Ten other food banks will also receive funding for fiscal year 2023:

  • Community Harvest Food Bank – $101,400
  • Dare to Care Food Bank – $37,400
  • Food Bank of Northwest Indiana – $97,700
  • Food Finders Food Bank, Inc. – $93,900
  • FreeStore Foodbank– $9,000
  • Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, Inc. – $318,200
  • Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Inc. – $42.600
  • Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central IN, Inc. – $77,500
  • Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank, Inc. – $44,000
  • Tri-State Food Bank, Inc. – $63,300
