Second Harvest Food Bank of ECI, the region’s largest hunger-relief organization with a network of 96 agency partners and 35 schools in Blackford, Delaware, Grant, Henry, Jay, Madison, Randolph and Wabash counties, is carefully monitoring developments regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Our goal, at this time, is to increase food availability to our communities in phases. As quickly as we coordinate new efforts, we will implement new procedures to get the food out. Please watch this space for continuing and up-to-date information.
At Second Harvest, we help feed hundreds of children, families and seniors every week. In order to do so, we rely on the generous support of individuals, corporations, and community partners.
This drive-through program meets people where they live by taking food to a central location in each of the eight counties we serve. Everyone is welcome at the tailgates. We will never ask for an ID or for proof of income or address.
“We’ve had more school staff say they feel grateful to be helping with this program and look forward to each month to connect with our school families.”
Erica Robinson MoodyI honestly couldn't have done it without the support of the Forward Steps team & families. You all have literally helped change my life. From the bottom of my ❤ thank you, thank you, thank you.
a Woman who Braved the WinterIt was great passing out the food to everyone. It felt as though I was giving back to the community and it was an amazing feeling. It sure was cold out! But I was prepared.
a Lambda Chi Alpha BrotherMy brothers and I sorted potatoes for the food bank. The 4 of us really found our rhythm and used our teamwork to sort through over 3,000 pounds of potatoes!
