  5. The North Central Indiana Food Bank began operations as a SDO (Subsidiary Distribution Organization) of Gleaners Food Bank of Indianapolis. Our first distribution of 6,800 pounds was made in December 1993 to 29 agencies.

    In February 1996, we became a certified food bank of the America’s Second Harvest National Food Bank network.  As a member of America’s Second Harvest, we received offerings of donated product, with allotments based on the poverty population within our service area.  The Food Bank works in partnership with the community to feed the hungry, increase awareness of the effects of hunger and lead programs designed to alleviate hunger.

    The Food Bank of Northern Indiana serves Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Marshall, Starke and St. Joseph Counties and is a member of Feeding America, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) and United Way.

    Today, the Food Bank actively partners with local and national manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, food growers, packers and brokers to procure food.

    In addition, businesses, organizations and individuals conduct food and funds drives.  We are extremely grateful for the financial support we receive from corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals like you.

    In 2017, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana distributed more than 7 million pounds of food to its network of 165 member agencies in its six-county service area.

    Today, nearly 13% of the residents of northern Indiana are food insecure.  They don't know when they will eat their next meal.  Hunger is a silent epidemic.  When all of our residents have food security and access to nutritious foods, we will be even better physically and mentally prepared to take on life’s challenges.
