92% of every $1 contributed to the Food Bank goes toward our mission of feeding at-risk and food insecure residents of Northern Indiana.

A $1 donation buys enough food to serve 7 meals.

A $400 contribution makes it possible for the Food Bank to access and/or purchase 10,000 lbs of surplus food, enough food to prepare nearly 25,000 meals!

$1,600 will make it possible to access and/or purchase an entire truckload of food: that's 40,000 lbs of food; enough to prepare nearly 100,000 meals!
