Donate Food

Today, sixteen percent of households in Indiana are hungry or at risk of being hungry. Thanks to the work of Second Helpings, there will be 3,500 fewer people who are hungry tomorrow.

We can do so much more—but only with your help. Become a food donor. We’ll show you how easy it is to get started. And once you see the impact of your good work, we know you’ll want to keep going. Food donations require little effort on the part of food donors. Food donations can be arranged on a one-time basis or on an ongoing regular schedule.

Our biggest needs are: pasta, large cans of tomato products, herbs & spices and condiments.

To become a food donor, contact Joe Hoog at 317-632-2664×22 or
