Our annual Drive Away Hunger fall food drive kicks off October 18
and runs through November 29, 2019!
Food drives are a great way for businesses, organizations, and groups of all sizes to make a difference in the fight against hunger. In 2018, the Drive Away Hunger food drive helped Food Finders Food Bank collect more than 514,000 meals for people in need. In 2019, our goal is to collect the equivalent of 525,000 meals worth of healthy, nonperishable food.
With more than 77,000 of our Hoosier neighbors across North Central Indiana not knowing when or where their next meal is coming from, getting involved in this food drive is more important than ever. You can make a difference by organizing a food drive with your office, school, place of worship or any type of club or organization.
Check out our food drive planning kit for more information.
Thank you to the businesses, schools, and places of worship that hosted food drives in 2018!
