Throughout the year, the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana holds other mobile pantry opportunities, including distributions during Hunger Action Month (September), the holidays (Hope for the Holidays) and more. We are always looking for volunteers to help with set-up, tear-down and distribution.


These special distributions help provide meals to an additional 1,000 individuals during the holiday season. They are open to the public, but distribution is first come, first served while supplies last. Residents of Lake and Porter Counties need to bring proof of residency (ID, rent receipt, utility bills, etc…) and are encouraged to bring their own bags and boxes to carry items.

Interested in volunteering for one of the distributions? Contact Jaymie at or 219.980.1777 ext. 316 to learn more about group and individual opportunities and sign up today.
