7 Million Meals and Counting

Second Helpings marks a milestone this year — preparing and delivering its 7 millionth meal.

Since 1998, Second Helpings has rescued more than 19 million pounds of food from grocery stores, wholesalers, restaurants and hotels that might otherwise go to waste around Indianapolis. That food is prepared into nutritious meals and delivered to 70 social services agencies, such as shelters, senior centers, after school programs. We now prepare and deliver 3500 meals each day.

It’s not just the meal we celebrate, it’s what it means. We honor the work of the volunteers at Second Helpings who contribute their time to rescue food, work in the kitchen, deliver meals and the many other tasks that Second Helpings needs to operate smoothly every day.

Fox59 visited Second Helpings in August to help mark the milestone that shows the enthusiam of our volunteers, the generosity of our food donors and the caring gifts of financial supporters – each plays a critical role in delivering meals to those in need.
