Online map helps Hoosiers find food assistanceMarch 30, 2020
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — An interactive online statewide map can help Indiana residents seeking food assistance find what they need.
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration announced Friday it had developed the map in partnership with the state’s food banks, the Indy Hunger Network and the food bank group Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.
See the map here.
The map shows two types of organizations, food pantries and meal sites. Food pantries are locations where Hoosiers can pick up groceries to prepare and use at their homes. Meal sites serve packed meals, ready to take home and eat.
FSSA Secretary Jennifer Sullivan says many Hoosiers’ financial situations have changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
She says many families who have never needed assistance before need it now. She says the online map can help them locate resources to meet their food and nutrition needs.
