Indy Food Drop

Through membership in Indy Hunger Network, four of Indianapolis’ largest hunger-relief agencies collaborated on the launch of a new website, Indy Food Drop, designed to help the trucking industry redirect any rejected food by local grocers and distributors from going into dumpsters and landfills, into the hands of people in need. By harnessing the power, people and resources of Gleaners Food Bank, Midwest Food Bank, Second Helpings and St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, truck drivers and brokers now have an easy way to get any rejected food items unloaded so they can get their trucks back on the road quickly – all while helping hundreds of families in need. The agencies partnered with the Indiana Motor Truck Association on this new initiative.
