Our annual Drive Away Hunger fall food drive kicks off October 19 and runs through December 1, 2017!
Food drives are a great way for businesses, organizations, and groups of all sizes to make a difference in the fight against hunger. In 2016, the Drive Away Hunger food drive helped Food Finders Food Bank collect more than 332,000 meals for people in need. This year, our goal is to collect the equivalent of 400,000 meals worth of healthy, nonperishable food.
With more than 79,000 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. Register your food drive here!
Thank you to the more than 40 businesses, schools, and places of worship that have already signed up to host a food drive!
