#GivingTuesday- 11-29-16

Celebrating Generosity by Providing an Opportunity to Give More, Give Smarter and Give Great!

Join the worldwide #GivingTuesday movement and help redefine the spirit of giving this holiday season in northern Indiana!

Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours and activities that bring real change in communities.

  • Nearly 14% of the residents of northern Indiana go hungry - that's 1 in 6 adults and 1 in 4 children.
  • The Food Bank works with a network of nearly 200 member agencies in Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Marshall, Starke and St. Joseph Counties in Indiana and distributed nearly 7 million pounds in 2015.
  • Food Bank Programming includes:  Food 4 Kids Backpack Program, Healthy Choices Market, Healthy Choices Mobile Food Pantries, Senior Nutrition Program, Senior Commodity Supplemental Food Prgram and the Community Food Pantry of St. Joseph County.
  • Ways to Help:  Donate, Volunteer, Advocate Educate.
  • A $1 donation buys nearly three meals and has 10 times the impact of a can donation.  The Food Bank's purchasing power is great, allowing us to really stretch a dollar and purchase what is most needed.  http://www.feedindiana.org/donate
