Saint Mary's College Holy Cross Harvest

The face of hunger is very real in our community.  Friends, family and co-workers who don't know when they will eat their next meal.  This means they are "food insecure" and many are too proud to ask for help.The problem is closer than you think:
  • 16% of the residents of northern Indiana go hungry each day.
  • Nearly 300,000 households in northern Indiana needed help in 2012.
  • Pantries across northern Indiana doubled the number of clients who need help.
But so is the solultion.$1 = 9 meals or 11 pounds of food.  For every dollar donated, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana can provide 9 meals or 11 pounds of food  to its member agencies.  94 cents of every dollar goes back into our community.
