Did you know?

  • More than 42,000 individuals—or 16% of the population—in St. Joseph County are food-insecure; more than 353,000 (21.2%) of the children in Indiana experience food insecurity.

  • 13.5% of individuals live in poverty and many more struggle on a daily basis.

  • Approximately 7,000 students per day drop out of high school in America. Dropouts earn $200,000 less over their lifetimes compared to high school grads, and 75% of crimes are committed by high school drop-outs.

We combat these realities by providing nutritious healthy meals that raise funds for local programs.

Our partnerships with Notre DameNelson’s Catering, Fresh Thyme, Rise’n Roll, and The Century Center allow us to supply food to local food banks and churches across South Bend, Mishawaka, and Elkhart.
