Due to the forecast of a wind chill below zero, we have CANCELLED our Henry County Tailgate for Friday, December 16, 2016!


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.

Our First Monday eNewsletter is a free, monthly roundup of Second Harvest news and articles.


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.
