FSSA & Feeding Indiana’s Hungry Call for Hoosiers to Volunteer
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration is joining with Feeding Indiana’s Hungry to encourage Hoosiers to resume or start new volunteer service at one of Indiana’s food banks and other charitable food distribution sites.

Volunteers will be urgently needed as members of the Indiana National Guard will end their temporary, six-month deployment to aid Indiana’s food banks on Sept. 30, 2020. Since being deployed in early April, guardsmen served more than 36 million meals to more than four million Hoosiers.

The charitable food distribution network operates 13 regional locations across the state, which provide food for distribution to community-based pantries. Locations continue to face an increased demand for food by Hoosiers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hoosiers can volunteer by filling out a brief form at OperationFood.IN.gov. They will be contacted by their regional food bank to match them with volunteer assignments.

Information from those who sign up to volunteer at OperationFood.IN.gov will be gathered by Feeding Indiana’s Hungry and shared with the charitable food network around the state.
