Each day, the Food Bank is rescuing food that may otherwise end up in the landfill. Through strong relationships with our local grocery and retail stores, drivers are busy collecting and inventorying thousands of pounds of food each week. Without the rescue program and retail donations, the Food Bank would have to purchase more food. More than 50% of our acquired food is bulk product from stores.
The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana has also started collecting food items from local schools. Turning the rescued food into donations to local pantries and soup kitchens in the network.
