Feeding Indiana’s Hungry is the state association of food banks affiliated with Feeding America (formerly known as America’s Second Harvest) the nation’s largest food bank network. Collectively, these 11 member food banks serve all 92 counties in Indiana. Since 2005, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry has grown to eleven member food banks, all affiliated with Feeding America, serving all 92 Indiana counties.
Our partnerships have broadened to encompass not just the State of Indiana, but partners in Hoosier agriculture, including the Indiana Pork Producers and the Indiana Soybean Alliance through the “Million Meals” pork purchase and distribution program; Indiana’s Family of Farmers; the Indiana Vegetable Growers’ Association; and other commodity groups. We work with Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources and Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry to facilitate the processing of deer donated by hunters for distribution at the food banks. We work with generous corporate partners in the food industry.
We are fortunate to have partners in Indiana’s Attorney General Greg Zoeller and the Indiana State Bar Association, who sponsor the annual March Against Hunger statewide food drive. We additionally work with the Indiana Coalition for Human Services, the Children’s Coalition of Indiana, and other partners serving similar populations, and we serve as a member of Indiana Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (INVOAD).
