Each year, over two million pounds of food goes directly to people in need through the Second Harvest Tailgate Program. This drive-through program meets people where they live by taking food to a central location in each of the eight counties we serve. Local volunteers help load cars as they drive through. Local United Way, business, and organizational support helps fund this program.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Kellie Arrowood at Karrowood@curehunger.org or 765-287-8698 ext 105

Tailgate Weather Policy:

The safety of clients and the Food Bank’s staff and volunteers is very important to us. No tailgate distributions will take place when:

  • Wind-chill is reported to be below 0 degrees.
  • Heat index is reported to be above 100 degrees.
