Midwest Food Bank of Indiana
The origin of Midwest Food Bank’s Indianapolis, Indiana location reminds us that together, we can accomplish amazing things. Efforts started here in 2005 when a group from Indianapolis worked with Midwest Food Bank to ship containers of food to Liberia, Africa, an area in desperate need.
By 2007, it became obvious that the Indianapolis area and beyond had a large population of those suffering from hunger, and the group decided that a permanent local Midwest Food Bank location was necessary. The land and building were graciously donated, and remodeling was completed by 2008 when the first load-out took place. Today, from our warehouse and several satellite distributions, Midwest Food Bank of Indianapolis provides food to over 300 agency partners in over 70 counties in Indiana. This is only possible the help and support of our incredible volunteers.
Unique Food Bank Offerings and Partnerships
Midwest Food Bank of Indianapolis continues to grow by always looking for new ways to provide food for the hungry. We understand that more partnerships mean more people are fed. We have partnered with the Indiana Motor Truck Association and three other food bank organizations. Our partnership with Indy Hunger Network in Indianapolis helped to develop Food Drop Indy, which ensures that no food goes to waste. Now, when stores can’t accept food from a delivery truck for whatever reason, that truck will then head to one of the partnered locations to donate any salvageable food.
There are so many opportunities to help stop hunger. Please consider working with us on the most fulfilling journey you may ever experience. Donation and volunteer opportunities are always available.
