FSSA In Search For Operation Food Volunteers

Locations continue to face increased demand for food by Hoosiers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana FSSA has joined forces with Feeding Indiana’s Hungry to encourage Hoosiers to answer the urgent call to volunteer at one of Indiana’s food banks and other charitable food distribution sites.  

Since we first placed this call to service on Sept. 14, more than 450 Hoosiers have volunteered! But several hundred more are still needed to help fully staff our state’s food banks as members of the Indiana National Guard end their temporary, six-month deployment.

Please help us spread the word that Hoosiers can volunteer by filling out a brief form at OperationFood.IN.gov. They will be contacted by their regional food bank to match them with volunteer assignments.

The charitable food distribution network operates 13 regional locations across the state, which provide food for distribution to community-based pantries. Locations continue to face increased demand for food by Hoosiers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Information from those who sign up to volunteer at OperationFood.IN.gov will be gathered by Feeding Indiana’s Hungry and shared with the charitable food network around the state. Potential volunteers may also reach out directly to a food bank in their area here.
