As a Hunger Hero, I made a gift to Gleaners to feed the hungry while fasting with the LIFE app.
Gleaners’ mission is simple and direct: To lead the fight against hunger.
The facts are startling: 1 in 6 people in central and southeast Indiana struggles with hunger and food insecurity. The most vulnerable of our friends and neighbors — senior citizens and children — are at even greater risk. Twenty-percent of our elderly and our children don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
To make matters worse, many of those people who need help fall into a gap where they struggle to put food on their table and yet their incomes are too high to qualify for federal hunger-relief programs such as SNAP or free school meals for children.
On a yearly basis, hundreds of thousands of hungry Hoosiers depend on food and other critical grocery products provided by Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. Gleaners supplies items to hunger relief agencies and schools throughout 21 counties in central and southeastern Indiana.
