FIND FOOD and OTHER RESOURCES
Are you, your family, neighbor, or coworker in need of food? At Second Harvest, our goal is to provide help to every person who is looking for assistance. We connect people with the services they need and make sure that every guest is treated with dignity and respect.
As a food bank, Second Harvest supplies products to member agencies throughout east central Indiana. These agencies then provide food directly to clients through programs including food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. Agencies provide emergency and/or short-term food assistance.
SENIOR SAFETY NET
Seniors are one of the fastest growing groups of people to experience food insecurity. That’s where the Senior Safety Net comes in. This initiative is for any community members 60+ years old who need food or other resources.
INDIANA SNAP PROGRAM
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides food assistance to low- and no-income people and families living in the United States. It is a federal aid program administered by the Food and Nutrition Service of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), however, distribution of benefits occurs at the state level. In Indiana, the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) is responsible for ensuring federal regulations are initially implemented and consistently applied in each county.
LOCAL SNAP OFFICES
Second Harvest also hosts tailgate food distributions for each county in our service area. The tailgate program consists of Second Harvest staff and volunteers setting up a trailer full of food products in parking lots in each county. Those in need of food can stop in at the tailgate location and drive through to receive food. No IDs, or proof of address or income are required.

We at Second Harvest believe that providing help to those in need requires a full community effort. Across our service area there are many organizations that provide a variety of resources to people in need of assistance.
