The Hunger Relief Fund has been established in the greater Clinton, Indiana area to benefit individuals facing food shortages, whether temporary or long-term. This fund is flexible and can adapt to changing community needs, with its primary objective being to ensure that everyone in the area can access enough food for a healthy life, regardless of their situation.
This fund has the potential to assist various food programs. One category of projects that the Hunger Relief Fund could support consists of food pantries, including Mobile Pantries, Drive-Through Pantries, and Traditional Pantries. Additionally, this fund is open to supporting backpack programs, which typically provide free groceries to children and their families during weekends and school breaks, free summer meals for kids, senior food programs, before and after school feeding programs, and more.
Dale White, CEO of the Western Indiana Community Foundation, stated “Food shortage is a widespread issue in Vermillion County, and we believe this fund will make a significant and lasting difference in our community for many years to come.”
