Saint Mary's College Food Drive
How can 49 million people face hunger in a country that wastes an estimated 70 billion pounds of food each year?The Food Bank of Northern Indiana's network of 170 member agencies served nearly one-half million households who were in need of food assistance more than one time throughout the year.
The problem is closer than you think:
- Nearly 17% of our friends, co-workers and family members do not have enough to eat. They are food insecure.
- 1 in 4 children live in a food insecure household.
- Pantries all across northern Indiana struggle to keep their shelves stocked to feed the hungry.
