    Second Harvest 

    Second Harvest Food Bank has been servicing East Central Indiana for 32 years by relying on the generosity of others to provide food assistance to those in need.

    The “Farm to Food Bank Program”, made possible by association with Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, enables state food banks to buy items from local farmers that generally aren’t donated, providing a major, positive impact.

    Second Harvest is in partnership with many local organizations, such as the Purdue University School of Technology, the Flagship Enterprise Center of Anderson, and Old National Bank, but is always looking forward to new partners.

    A member of Feeding American national network, Second Harvest distributed 13 million pounds to those in need in 2014.

    In addition to charitable donations, other types of assistance is always needed. Find out more about how you can assist at http://www.curehunger.org/GetInvolved.
